MONTREAL, June 14, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - VIA Rail Canada would like to inform travellers that they will ensure a full train schedule this week and that capacity will be added as required. As Canada's national rail passenger service, VIA Rail would like to reassure passengers and the public about their available options when planning their travel within the country if other prominent carriers may experience a disruption in services.

Hence, we plan on ensuring a full train schedule next week and we will add capacity as required, depending on the demand", emphasized Mr. Denis Pinsonneault, Chief Customer Experience Officer at VIA Rail Canada.
