Via Rail Discount

Via offers Queen's employees a discount of 15% off the best available fare, above and beyond the already discounted seniors’ rate for anyone over 60. This additional 10% discount can also be applied to supersaver discounts in economy class or the economy discounted fare (both have to be purchased in advance and are subject to availability and to other conditions). The Queen’s rate is available to retirees who show their RAQ card. Retirees may also inquire about business class discounted or supersaver.  Senior discounts do not apply to business tickets; these fares also have conditions and limited availability.


At time of booking don’t hesitate to mention if you require any assistance during your travel with baggage or if you have a mobility issue so they can request help ahead of time by leaving notes on your file.


You can book online or over the phone with this info.  No need to buy at the station.


For instructions on how to take advantage of this discount see
Note that as of July 05 2016, the discount no longer applies to Escape Fares.
