Travel Advisory - VIA operations update: All trains operating despite Winter storm conditions - High Demand For Seats Continues Throughout the Windsor to Quebec City Corridor



    TORONTO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - With a winter storm hitting the Ontario and
Quebec region and forecasts of heavy snowfall mixed with freezing rain
expected to continue over the next few days wreaking havoc on the highways and
impacting other modes of transportation, VIA Rail Canada advises that all
trains in the Windsor-Québec City corridor region are operating as normal. As
the storm continues to make its presence felt, VIA expects demand for seats to
quickly increase.
    As a result of the heavy snowfall, some VIA trains may experience minor
delays of between 30 to 60 minutes.
    VIA will add cars where possible to meet the increased demand. Passengers
are therefore advised to book as early as possible and to verify departure and
arrival times.
    Information and reservations are available at viarail.ca, at 888 VIA-RAIL
(888 842-7245), TTY 800-268-9503 (hearing impaired), or through your travel
agent.
    Customers can also use VIA ticket kiosks to avoid lengthy line-ups or
driving and parking stresses associated with inclement weather. Ticket kiosks
are located in the following Corridor locations: Québec, Ste-Foy, Montréal,
Dorval, Ottawa, Fallowfield, Kingston, Belleville, Cobourg, Oshawa, Toronto,
Oakville, Aldershot, Brantford, Guelph, Kitchener, London and Windsor.
    VIA sincerely regrets any inconvenience these delays may cause to its
passengers.
