What’s new?

New Ottawa-Toronto Frequency
Since November 1st, VIA Rail upgraded its schedule between Ottawa and Toronto. Travellers now have a choice of two new afternoon departures (one departure each way), bringing the service offering up to nine daily departures in each direction during the week.

You asked! We listened!
VIA Rail has started equipping the new LRC cars with table extensions for Business class passengers. The table extensions will be released gradually and will offer passengers a larger work surface for their computer, or during meal service. This initiative, which was put in place in response to customer feedback, shows our commitment to putting our passenger first.
