Gearing up for Back to School

09/01/2007 AT 08:00

Students of all ages can take advantage of savings and fare discounts available with VIA Rail Canada throughout the school year. With discounts and plenty of departures from university/college towns served by VIA's Windsor-Québec City Corridor services, travelling by train makes cents.

The ISIC Card (International Student Identity Card) is recognized around the world. It is the only student ID card recognized by VIA which entitles students 18 years of age or older to save 35% on individual Comfort class (Economy) fares throughout Canada, as well as savings on other classes. No advance purchase is required, and there are no service charges! Student fares are available for all trains and all destinations year round. Just present your ISIC wherever VIA tickets are sold.

Being a student often means having to travel frequently between the same two cities - between home and college/university, for example. And being a student often means your travel budget is tight. The VIA 6 pak makes the grade for students with savings of 50% on the purchase of three round-trip tickets between the same two stations! A valid ISIC card is required to obtain the VIA 6 pak and to book your tickets.

Students can visit VIA's dedicated website at viacampus.ca to order a VIA 6 pak, review schedules or simply connect with other student travellers. For a complete listing of train departures, fares, or information on any VIA product or service please call 1888 VIA-RAIL (842-7245), TTY 1 800 268-9503 (hearing impaired), visit VIA's website viarail.ca, or contact your travel agent. Passengers can also book their tickets at VIA kiosks located in major Corridor stations. Students can also sign up for VIA's Student e-Letter to receive updates on contests, promotions and other savings.
