VIA Salutes the Fountain of "Youth"


MONTREAL - VIA Rail Canada is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Youth Fare that recognizes the many grades in a student’s life. Whether taking a year off between studies, a recent graduate, or a part-time student, VIA realizes that savings still matter to a group of travellers that are ready to travel on a moments notice. The new Youth Fare provides the flexibility of last minute booking while taking advantage of savings and fare discounts available with VIA throughout the year.

VIA’s new Youth Fare is available until January 31, 2008, to individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 inclusive and provides travellers with discounts off the regular adult fare:

25% discount in Comfort class (economy)
10% discount in sleeper class (including Totem and Totem Deluxe classes)
10% discount on Canrailpass, Corridorpass, and the North America Rail Pass
In addition to these savings the new Youth Fare is fully flexible. No advance purchase or special booking class is necessary and no service charges will be applied to changes made to tickets. To take advantage of this new fare photo ID with proof of age is required at the time of ticket purchase and must also be presented on board the train upon request.

In addition to VIA’s new Youth fare which is available to all travellers between the ages of 18-25, VIA offers a wide range of products and services to full-time students attending Canadian secondary or post-secondary institutions. For more information on the ISIC Card (International Student Identity Card), recognized around the world and other products and fares, visit VIA’s dedicated website at

VIA Rail Canada is the national passenger rail service, connecting some 450 communities from coast to coast. Demand for VIA’s rapid inter-city services in the Québec City-Windsor Corridor has grown in recent years, as more Canadians turn to train travel as a hassle-free and cost-efficient alternative to congested roads and airports.
