Media and Travel Requests

News Media: If you would like to film on our property, we will make every effort to accommodate your request. Note that many of the stations from which we operate are not owned by VIA Rail, in which case, permission to film must be sought from the property owner. Note that regardless of the train station owner, VIA Rail’s safety rules must still be followed when filming.

We understand that your request may be time sensitive, and we do our best to respond to all requests in a timely manner, while respecting the needs of our passengers and our employees. It is best to contact us a minimum of 2 weeks prior to your desired filming date.
