VIA Rail Canada looks at new morning train from Toronto to Waterloo Region

June 23, 2015

From CBC:

Via Rail is considering a morning train from Toronto to Waterloo Region, according to Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, Via’s president and CEO.

The news comes after Via announced it would add a new weekday train from Stratford to Toronto leaving at 6:30 a.m. and another train departing from Toronto’s Union Station at 4:30 p.m.

“Obviously one of the big issues for us here in Waterloo Region is to also see a commuter train coming in from Toronto in the mornings, and that’s something we continue to advocate strongly for,” said Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic. ‘If you look at the numbers we have essentially about the same number of people commuting into Waterloo Region from the GTA as we do have commuting into the GTA area.”
