MONTREAL, Dec. 16 /CNW/ - Despite the heavy snowfall in Ontario and
Quebec, VIA Rail wishes to advise travellers that all trains are operating
normally throughout the region. VIA operates some 60 trains per day throughout
the Windsor-Quebec City Corridor.
Although the heavy snowfall may cause minor delays on some trains, none
have been canceled.
As weather conditions worsen, many VIA trains are beginning to get closer
to a sold out situation. VIA has added cars to accommodate the demand but
customers are advised 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 viarail.ca, or through their travel agent.
VIA offers a stress-free, safe and comfortable winter travel alternative.
