Our Business class, the standard of comfortable travelling, is back! After a temporary hiatus, we’re happy to reintroduce—with a few minor changes—our favourite way to travel in Ontario and Québec.
Let’s face it, its been a long 2020 so far. Since adding some extra safety precautions to our service, we’re happy to be moving again. And now that you’re back to travelling, we want you to once again enjoy an elevated VIA Rail experience on your next trip in the Québec City – Windsor corridor.
What makes Business class great? Begin your trip in the Business lounge, now open in Toronto, Ottawa and Montréal with reduced capacity to allow for comfortable distancing. Relax before your trip in our spacious and tranquil spaces featuring complimentary Wi-Fi.
Onboard, enjoy a great meal, coupled with locally sourced Canadian wine or beer. We’ve made some slight modifications to our onboard meal, all while ensuring the high level of service you’ve come to know and expect.
We know why our passengers love Business class and that plays into every decision we make. Click here for full details on our current service offering.
Ultimately, however, the best part about Business class is treating yourself. And that doesn’t only apply to people travelling for business. “You’re getting an excellent meal, with locally sourced food and beverage and, of course, our executive-class service,” says Dean Rockhead, Senior Manager, Product and Service Design. Dean leads the design of the Business class experience from start to finish. “And Business class is more affordable than you might think, especially if you take the time to book ahead.”
He also believes that Business class shouldn’t only be for passengers travelling for work. “More than ever, we want people to have an unforgettable experience. We want them to say, ‘Wow, why haven’t I always travelled in Business?’”
Tons of leg room, spacious and comfortable seating, and the exceptional VIA Rail service you’ve come to expect are a few of the perks that make Business class with us a truly unparalleled way to travel.
