VIA Rail to adjust schedules

Beginning May 1, VIA Rail Canada Inc. will change several train schedules in Quebec and Ontario based on feedback received from passengers and a train operations performance review.

A train running from Montreal to Quebec City will depart Montreal at 6:20 a.m., 40 minutes earlier than the current schedule.

VIA Rail also will add a stop in Trenton Junction along its Ottawa-to-Ontario line, and adjust schedules on its Sarnia-to-Toronto line so morning and evening trains will leave later to improve connections to other trains.

In addition, the agency will extend late-night service between Toronto and Kitchener to London, and operate a new evening train from Stratford to Toronto on Fridays and Saturdays.

Between London, Brantford and Toronto, VIA Rail will add a Friday night-only train.

Finally, the agency will offer earlier departures from Toronto to Niagara Falls, and a new mid-afternoon service from Niagara Falls to Toronto.
