Amtrak is the US train service

Greyhound is bus service

You're looking at a distance of 1300 miles, and one international border.

Most people fly.

the Coast Starlight train is very popular. It will travel to Seattle where you can connect to the Amtrak Cascades Train to Vancouver BC. Its a really wonderful trip by train up the coast. You might want to break the trip and spend a day or so in San Francisco, Seattle before heading to Vancouver. Its one of the more popular american train rides.

You are talking a distance similar to Adelaide - Brisbane. How many days were you planning for this?

Agree with David it's a lovely train trip. I've done the part from San Francisco to BC albeit many years ago but the memories of the trip are wonderful. if you have the time I also recommend a stop in San Francisco and or Portland and or Seattle for a few days each... I think it's called "slow travel" lol
