VIA Chaleur Service Set to Resume on September 21

09/20/2008 AT 08:24

As a result, regular thru-service on VIA's Chaleur from Montréal to Gaspé is expected to resume on Sunday, September 21. Regular service on VIA's Chaleur between Montréal and Matapédia will resume on Wednesday, September 17. Alternate transportation for passengers travelling between Matapédia and Gaspé in both directions has been arranged from Wednesday, September 17 to Saturday, September 20.

Regular service on VIA's Ocean, which was rerouted via Edmundston for the past couple of weeks, resumed earlier this week following the completion of repairs to another bridge, this one near Causapscal.

The Chaleur operates from Montréal to Gaspé every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and from Gaspé to Montréal every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The Ocean operates between Montréal and Halifax in both directions, daily except Tuesday.

VIA anticipates that these trains will continue to experience delays, occasionally significant, as track repairs and upgrades continue over the coming weeks. This may occasionally affect passengers transferring to/from other VIA trains. VIA undertakes to do everything possible to minimize any inconvenience to its customers.
