VIA Rail’s departures, arrivals now online

Posted on April 9, 2009

Montreal-based VIA Rail Canada’s arrival and departure times for all Québec City – Windsor Corridor trains are now available online at viarail.ca.

The new Website enables customers to access the real-time status of any Corridor train, giving them the most accurate and up-to-date information about the expected arrival time at their final destination.

In addition to the continually updated arrival time for the train’s final destination, VIA’s easy to follow online timetable provides customers with the scheduled and estimated departure/arrival times for each station stop en route, making it possible for customers to follow the status of any Corridor train from its departure right through to its final destination.

VIA anticipates offering this same service for its trains in Atlantic and Western Canada as a future enhancement and is also in the process of developing a mobile version of this service, which will be accessible by smartphones.
