VIA Rail Canada Discount Fares now available for U of T faculty & staff

November 7, 2014

As the holiday season quickly approaches, are you looking to travel as part of your celebrations?

VIA Rail Canada now offers a discount on all fares to University of Toronto employees and alumni. This discount is good for 10% off the best available fare all year long (subject to change).

For details of this offer and to book tickets, go to the University of Toronto Faculty & Staff VIA Rail page.

Whenever you book tickets with VIA Rail, quote the University of Toronto discount code 710052.

University of Toronto faculty & staff are able to utilize the University’s discounted rate with VIA Rail for personal and business travel. Faculty & staff are required to bring business identification with them on the booked trip (either a U of T staff card or a business card). This discount can also be extended to an additional 3 passengers (friends / family) traveling with the University of Toronto employee.

Please note: you may be required to show University of Toronto ID to VIA Rail Canada personnel when you book in person or when you travel.

All questions about the VIA Rail Canada discount fare program should be directed to Lisa Poulin at VIA Rail.

If you have a question about your eligibility to participate in this program as a University of Toronto employee, please email
