Regular service resumes:

Train 6 - Prince Rupert to Prince George (southbound), Wednesday, June, 13th

VIA continues to work on increasing the selection of provisions available on board. Regular meal service will be available between Prince George and Jasper, and all regular meal services will resume on June 15th

VIA is advising passengers to carry on snacks for the portion of the trip where no provisions were available.
