VIA Rail Canada Inc. on Sept. 1 will increase service between Quebec and Ontario due to an increase in demand for intercity travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency announced last week.

Service in the Quebec-Windsor Corridor will be restored to 50 percent of pre-pandemic levels, VIA Rail officials said in a press release.

“This represents our biggest addition of frequencies in the corridor since the start of the pandemic,” said VIA Rail President and Chief Executive Officer Cynthia Garneau. 

Meanwhile, The Ocean service between Montreal and Halifax, and The Canadian service between Toronto and Vancouver will remain cancelled until Nov. 1.
