Update: VIA Rail Cancels Most of its Services


MONTREAL, Feb. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Following a notice from the infrastructure owner, CN Rail, that they are no longer in a position to fulfill their obligations under the Train Service Agreement between VIA Rail and CN Rail, VIA Rail has no other option but to cancel all of its services on the network with the exception of Sudbury-White River (CP Rail) and Churchill-The Pas (Hudson Bay Railway), until further notice.

We started informing passengers earlier this afternoon that there will be no more train departures.

Upon infrastructure owner instructions, all VIA Rail trains currently en route will be able to reach the closest major train station.

We understand the impact this unfortunate situation has on our passengers and regret the significant inconvenience this is causing to their travel plans.
