Rocky Mountaineer will suspend its excursion passenger-rail service between Vancouver, British Columbia, and the Canadian Rockies through Oct. 11 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and government travel restrictions. 

“We are incredibly disappointed to announce the suspension of our rail operations through to the end of the 2020 season. Like so many in the tourism and hospitality industry, the pandemic has had an overwhelmingly negative impact on our business,” said Steve Sammut, Rocky Mountaineer president and chief executive officer, in a press release.

Rail tours will be postponed until the scheduled start of the railroad’s 2021 travel season.

Riders impacted by the suspension will receive a future travel credit valid through the end of the 2022 season. Rocky Mountaineer also will hold rail prices in 2021 and 2022 at the 2020 level, company officials said.
