First major snow storm of the season: no cancellations for VIA train


Minor delays; demand for VIA services expected to be strong. Many departures already sold out

MONTREAL - VIA Rail Canada would like to advise travellers that no train cancellations have been recorded and to remind them that during snowstorms, rails are the last mode of transport to be affected. There could be minor delays at certain locations; this is why we always recommend that our passengers verify departure and arrival times.

Snow and inclement weather add stress and time to driving, and often affect air travel. VIA added additional equipment in anticipation of the storm and the Holiday Season. Nevertheless, VIA advises travellers that many departures are already sold out, especially on the Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa routes.

VIA offers a stress-free, safe and comfortable alternative to winter driving or flying. For more details on VIA Rail Canada’s products, services and fares contact VIA Rail Canada at 888-842-7245 (888-VIA Rail) or visit

VIA Rail Canada operates passenger rail services across the country on behalf of the Government of Canada. Serving more than 450 communities coast-to-coast, VIA’s goal is to provide Canadians with a safe, efficient and environmentally sustainable and responsible passenger service.
