How early should I arrive?

Please allow plenty of time to travel, park and walk to the Ticket Check in counter in Union Depot. We recommend 30 to 45 min prior to your departure time.  There are many one-way and limited-access streets around Union Depot.  Once you arrive at Union Depot plan on walking – the majestic building covers several city blocks! Other special events at Union Station such as the CP Holiday Train, Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, evening movies, bake sales and other programs will cause parking congestion and slow foot traffic due to crowds and additional travel time should be allowed during these times. It is also wise to allow additional time when the weather is bad and during rush hour traffic.
