Environment

At the Heart of the Environment and Canadian Communities VIA Rail Canada provides a responsible and ecological transportation choice. By choosing VIA, you are making a decision that reduces the environmental impact of your travel.

In most cases, the train offers a clear advantage over other modes: every train car added to accommodate more passengers requires very little extra fuel consumption, generating lower average greenhouse gas emissions per person.

Through the communities it serves, the partnerships it forges and the actions it takes, VIA takes the environment and Canadian communities to heart.
