Youth
fare Maybe.

Perhaps you’re finally going to visit your parents because sharing a bathroom with three other people stops being fun and bohemian after a while.

VIA’s youth fare gets you 10% off your ticket price.

That’s 10% off anytime, 10% off on Economy Plus, Sleeper or Sleeper Plus fares.

That’s 10% off to have access to a clean bathroom and your parents’ unconditional love. 10% in your pocket—not bad!

If you are a student and between 12 and 25 years old or 26 and over with an ISIC card and you want to benefit from the youth fare, you must create a new profile and and select “Youth” as the passenger type. If you already have your profile, update it here.

Escape
fare On my way!

You’ll be down for a change of scenery when your roommate has her twentieth existential crisis.

The Escape fare always offers the lowest possible VIA Rail prices.

That’s
not all

*Since you have Wi-Fi access on board, you can study, text, or surf the Web. You can also just relax, chat, do nothing, look out the window, sleep and maybe end up drooling on your neighbour (or against the window).

*To benefit from the youth fare, you must create a new profile and and select “Youth” as the passenger type. If you already have your profile, update it here.

*At the beginning (from August 23 to September 6) and end of the semester (from December 6 to 20), you can bring more baggage: two 18 kg (40 lb) articles. When you head off to school, you can bring 36 kg of clothes and dishware. When you go home for vacation, it’ll be 36 kg of dirty laundry, dishware that needs washing, and perhaps a new girlfriend or boyfriend.

*You’re mostly going home to eat, but if you happen to get hungry en route there’s always the bar and light meal service.
