VIA adding more trains in SW Ontario

Postby MikeCDN » Wed May 20, 2015 6:42 pm

Does anybody know which routes they'll be adding trains to?

It'd be nice to see them add extras to the K/W line, Sarnia, Niagara and Windsor.

My thoughts,

Sarnia gets no mention. No indication of whether the extra Londons will be via Aldershot but presumably the extra Windsor will be.

Nice to see VIA continuing to add service. With their current CEO in charge they're in good hands IMO.

Awesome news. Though I am a bit surprised about the price. $60 for a 2 hours ride? That's about the cost of a ''regular'' fare for a Quebec-Montreal train, and that ride is nearly twice as long (3:20)

NeoArashi,

$60 may seem expensive. However, after dealing with and sitting in acute traffic, paying a flat rate of parking ( Usually around $25 ), and the stress of the trip - $60 seems like a small price for one's sanity regardless of the length of the trip :)

My thoughts,
