VIA Rail Canada Adds Service Due To Increased Demand
Due to an increase in demand resulting from the progressive deconfinement implemented by public health authorities in Québec and Ontario, VIA Rail Canada (VIA Rail) announces service changes effective June 3, which will be in place until further notice. Trains 62 and 669 will resume service between Toronto-Kingston-Montréal and trains 52,48,59 will resume between Toronto-Kingston-Ottawa. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the owner of the infrastructure (CN) between Prince Rupert-Prince George-Jasper has been performing infrastructure and maintenance improvements which temporarily impacted the available capacity. VIA Rail service offered on this route will however resume in July.
