VIA OPERATIONS UPDATE: ALL TRAINS OPERATING DESPITE WINTER STORM WARNING
ALL TRAINS STILL IN SERVICE
MONTREAL and TORONTO, Feb. 24, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - With a winter storm
hitting Ontario and Quebec and forecasts of heavy snowfall or rain
expected to affect road and air transportation in the coming hours, VIA
Rail Canada advises that all trains in the Ontario - Quebec corridor
are operating normally. There are already reports of delayed or
cancelled flights in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. As the storm makes
its presence felt, VIA expects demand for seats to quickly increase.
VIA operates some 60 trains per day throughout the Ontario-Quebec
Corridor. 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.
