Did you know that when you calculate the total duration of a trip, your car moves at about the same speed as the train when traffic is light and road conditions are good?

But, unlike the train, cars need to add 30 more minutes to the total length of the drive because of the traffic in the city centre.

In fact, when you take the train, you can be more productive because your hands are free and you can use your laptop or cellphone at any time.

Since flying is faster, it sometimes seems like it will save you time. But, when you add the lineups at security and when boarding, and the travel time between the airport and downtown, the length of your trip increases significantly.

Why waste time on a plane or in a car, when you can work with your laptop and cellphone on board a VIA Rail train?
