TRAVELLING WITH A CHILD UNDER 2 YEARS OF AGE?

Free for infants and toddlers under 2 years of age

Children under 24 months travel free provided that they do not occupy a seat. They must, however, be seated on an adult’s lap throughout the trip (an adult can travel with only one infant on his or her lap). Once you have purchased tickets for yourself and other family members online, you must provide us with your child’s name. You must do so by calling 1 888 VIA-RAIL (1 888 842-7245) or TTY 1 800 268-9503 (hearing impaired).

Book a seat for your infant or toddler

If you want your child to have a seat, you must purchase a child’s ticket. Please note: to purchase a child’s ticket online, you must reserve one or more tickets for the accompanying adult(s) at the same time.
