Our flagship car, the Park car, is always located at the very rear of the train.

Discounts available for:

Youth (12-25 years)

Just because you're not a full-time student anymore, you shouldn't have to lose out on great discounts. That's why VIA created the youth fare. If you're between the ages of 12 and 25, you're entitled to year-round discounts in:

  • Economy class
  • Sleeper, Touring and Sleeper Touring class
  • And a discount on the purchase of a Canrailpass or Corridorpass too!

To be eligible for the youth fare, you must present photo ID with proof of age any time it is requested by VIA personnel.

Seniors (60+)

As a traveller 60 years of age or over, you can save year round on the adult regular fare in Economy class.


Your kids will love to watch the countryside rolling by through huge windows. If they get restless, they also have the freedom to stretch their legs or satisfy a craving with one of our light meals or snacks sold on board. You'll love the time you get to spend together.

This year, give your family the quality travel time they deserve!

Read more about VIA's discounts for children:

  • Infants (0-24 months): Children under 24 months travel free provided that they do not occupy a seat. They must, however, be seated on an adult's lap throughout the trip (an adult can travel with only one infant on his or her lap).
  • Kids (2-11 years): In Economy class, children between 2 and 11 years of age always travel at half the adult fare, provided the child's ticket meets the conditions of the adult fare plan. Kids travelling in our Business class or Sleeper, Touring and Sleeper Touring classes will be quoted a discounted fare.
    Please note that children 7 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult. Important restrictions apply for older children travelling alone (i.e. who are not accompanied by their mother, father or an adult at least 18 years old).
