Installation of beehives on the rooftops of our stations
A new home for the bees
VIA Rail has committed itself to furthering its environmental protection efforts by establishing a partnership with Alvéole, a young Canadian company that merges beekeeping with education and local communities.
This partnership involves the installation of beehives on the rooftops of four VIA Rail stations: Vancouver, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Québec City. VIA Rail aims to help raise awareness among urban populations of the decline of bees and the impact it has on the environment.
