Why is it right for me?
With this pass, get the most out of summer by changing cities as often as you want.

Where can I go?
Anywhere in Canada.

When can I use it?

Age discrimination! 12-25 year olds are entitled enough as it is. Back in my day we shoveled coal into the train to pay for our tickets. And they made us ride on the roof, and that's just how we liked it.

Thanks for inadvertently catching my mistake. 12-25 years, not 24. Updated thread title.

I feel a little cheated, but it's a great opportunity for summer travel for some!

Note this tends to happen every year, and this is extremely last minute to make full use of the pass - it's valid 60 days, and we're already 13 days into that.

It's a great deal if you meet the criteria and can make full use to at least go one way across Canada.

60 days from May 1 - Aug 31.( If you do May 1 - Aug 31. Thats ~120 days)

So you can start on July 1 and End of Aug 29

Lots of opportunity to make use of it. I wish I knew this when I was younger... (if they even had this). Great deal to see Canada.

Reminds me of the eurail pass. I used it one summer and when local hostels were full or expensive I'd go to the train station, book a ticket to somewhere on an overnight train and sleep while travelling. Go to sleep in Paris, wake up in Monaco :-)

The age limit is not age discrimination, trust me. If you're above 24, you do NOT want to use this pass.

The cars will be absolutely filthy, the lack of sleeper will be a killer for older people, and probably everyone above 24 has a job so they can afford to not torture their not-so-young bodies.

Is this a learning disability thing? Problems with reading comprehension?

This is really cool. My buddies and I in our early 20's would loved this, would've spent a month or two just training around the country!

That's an awesome way to boost tourism across Canada. I wish they'd make it open for everyone though.

The linked YouTube video's title clearly states both India and Bangladesh so I don't get what your point is. He was not wrong by saying India.

Thanks for bringing Doug Ford / politics into this and the useless Geography lesson no one asked for.

It may be worth noting that this pass is about $100 cheaper than in previous years (although it sure doesn’t beat the $150 Canada Youth 150 pass in 2017).
