MONTREAL, March 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Despite the major storm beginning in
Ontario today and moving into Quebec tomorrow, all of VIA Rail Canada's trains
are operating normally throughout the region. VIA operates some 60 trains per
day throughout the Windsor-Quebec City Corridor.
As weather conditions worsen, many VIA trains are beginning to get closer
to a sold out situation. VIA will add cars to accommodate the demand but urges
customers to call ahead to be certain of available space. To book, customers
can call 1-888-VIA Rail, (842-7245), TTY 1-800 268-9503 (hearing impaired).
Tickets are also available at kiosks in major Corridor stations, online at
www.viarail.ca, or through travel agents.
VIA offers a stress-free, safe and comfortable winter travel alternative.
