TORONTO, Feb. 2 /CNW Telbec/ - With a major storm underway in Ontario
VIA reports no cancellations to its services in the Ontario - Quebec
corridor. Its morning trains are currently running on schedule.
With the heavy snowfall and poor driving conditions VIA encourages
customers to allow plenty of time to make it to the station and to pick
up their tickets as line-ups are expected to be longer than normal.
Travellers can check on the status of VIA's operations throughout the
day at http://www.viarail.ca/en/trains
VIA operates some 60 trains per day throughout the Ontario -Québec
Corridor and will add cars where possible to meet the increased demand.
