Baggage Information

Checked Baggage

In an effort to streamline our baggage handling operation, Ontario Northland will place labels on all baggage. Passengers will be issued a maximum of 3 regular labels upon receipt of their ticket. Excess baggage will be charged $5 per piece (tax included).

Baggage in excess of 50 lbs will be charged $10 per piece (tax included). Baggage placed on the baggage car without labels will be held until payment is received.
