About Ottawa Train Station

The Ottawa Train Station, also commonly called the Ottawa Station, is a part of the Via Rail system and connects Ottawa to Toronto and Montreal. The station was built during a time when travel by rail began to explode in Canada. The original station was known as the Grand Trunk Central Station but was later closed, and the new Ottawa Train Station was built. Surviving a sharp decline in use during the 1960s, the railway system became something of a novelty and not a necessity.

Today, people use the railway system as a way to quickly travel to Toronto or Montreal and back again. The Ottawa Train Station also offers several great services for passengers, including baggage service, checkroom service, bike boxes, vending machines, and a restaurant. King George VI was one of the station’s first important visitors. Elvis Presley even passed through the train station, creating quite a stir among the female population waiting for their trains. 

Fun Fact: The Ottawa Train Station is believed to have a resident ghost named Monsieur Leduc. Leduc was a CN official who once worked in the south wing of the train station. Workers and passengers have claimed to have seen this ghost late at night wandering through the station.

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
