Pay phones in Canada
« on: May 28, 2007, 05:20:46 pm »
I hope to do a long tour in Canada this Summer. I'd be in southern Saskatchewan, southern Alberta and perhaps in eastern BC and might, now and then, have to call a phone in Canada or in the US from Canada. Since I don't have and don't really want a cell phone, I wonder how easy it is to find a pay phone in those named provinces of Canada. I ask because I know that pay phones are disappearing here in the US and wonder if this is also happening in Canada.

If they're still to be found in Canada, where? In gas stations? In supermarkets? In shopping centers? Where?

The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.

As much as I hate them too cells add a level of insurance to your ride. Tracfones cost like 20.00$ and you can get  times ranging from 20-50.00 quite easily. Otherwise I would do as you have mentioned stick to grocery stores for contacting the states.
