Reimagining the Canadian journey
We have been working hard on modernizing our services and infrastructure. We want to offer our passengers a safe, more reliable and enjoyable experience while helping to protect the environment and boost the Canadian economy. We are setting the groundwork for the future of sustainable travel in Canada.
The Fleet Replacement Program is a building block of our modernization plan which will help VIA Rail contribute to building a more connected Canada. Starting in 2022, VIA Rail will begin deployment of a new generation of trains on the Quebec City-Windsor corridor that will transform the travel experience for Canadians. A more comfortable, sustainable and accessible service, improving the environmental footprint through advanced energy-efficient technology. Get ready to experience this new adventure with us!
Modernization of our Toronto and Montréal Maintenance Centers
A key component of our modernization plan
The modernization of our Toronto and Montréal maintenance facilities is an integral part of our Fleet Replacement Program in the Corridor. While continuing to maintain and service the existing fleet, these centers will be renovated and upgraded to service our 32 new trains. The Toronto and Montréal Maintenance Centers and their employees are key players in ensuring the reliability of the new fleet.
