VIA Rail Canada cuts fares by 50% through May 31, 2011


I ran into a friend the other day who asked me about taking the train across Canada. Since I'd traveled from Halifax to Vancouver in November 2009 during my Great Big Canadian Train Adventure, I had some suggestions. They included traveling in the off-season and checking for any specials.

Well, now is a good time to go by rail.

If you travel anywhere on VIA Rail Canada before May 31, 2011 the fares are 50% off. That means 1/2 price off adult regular fares in Economy, Sleeper and Sleeper Touring classes. The offer ends Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011.

Sample One-Way Fares on Popular Routes:


Toronto - Montreal $67.50
Toronto - Ottawa $62.00
Montreal - Quebec City $36.50
Montreal - Ottawa $27.00
