VIA Rail passengers can register online with Communauto or VRTUCAR to purchase a train ticket and reserve a vehicle. At the end of their train ride, passengers can use a vehicle located at the station or any other Communauto or VRTUCAR point of service.

VIA Rail has added a new car-sharing area at its Ottawa station.
