Usually, it is "to".
Student or Learner
I don't know which preposition is correct here, can you help please?
"Is this the train to/for Paris?"
"What time does the train to /for Paris leave? "
Thank you very much for your help.
Yes – 'to' is almost always correct, though 'for' is sometimes heard.
Just say 'Is this the Paris train?'
The British National Corpus has 90 citations for 'the train to + town' and just eight for 'the train for + town'.
I've learned a new thing here today. Thank you.
I've always thought "the train/bus/airplane for..." is correct.
If my student had written "The train to Osaka leaves at ten." in his/her writing assignment, I would have corrected it to "The train for Osaka..."
