Stations & Real Estate

 
A tour of our stations and properties

Every year, close to 4.8 million passengers count on us to take them where they need to go, thanks to our onboard and in-station teams and our maintenance centres and offices. As we believe that a station is more than just a waypoint, we make ongoing improvements to increase accessibility, preserve historic buildings, and create economic value for local communities.

Secondary stations

These stations primarily serve suburban communities on the Québec City–Windsor Corridor. In terms of annual visitors, they are the second-busiest stations.

Tertiary stations

To bring people together and serve remote communities, VIA Rail has 345 train stations, shelters, and signposts that have more modest visitor rates. They are located in the suburbs, in rural areas, and in remote areas that can be accessed only by train.

Intermodal stations

Every year, VIA Rail forms numerous intermodal partnerships as part of its plan to modernize Canadian passenger rail. Intermodal stations provide easy access to other means of transportation, such as regional and intercity buses, regional and city transit trains, car-sharing services, airport shuttle services, and car rental services.

54 heritage stations

Heritage stations are an important part of the Canadian railway system’s history. In order to protect the heritage value of these stations, VIA Rail makes an ongoing effort to preserve and restore all 54 heritage stations across Canada.

Keeping you on the go: maintenance centers and workforce

To keep our trains in operating order all across Canada, we rely on dedicated teams to preserve, repair, and upgrade our fleet. Our offices complete our workforce to help get our passengers where they need to go and ensure a safe and unique travel experience.

A look inside our maintenance centres

Our headquarters

Montréal

VIA Rail’s regional offices (Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver) operate under the umbrella of our Montréal headquarters, which is our main Québec office and home to our management team. Whether pertaining to rolling stock, finance, or marketing, project creation and management primarily take place at our headquarters before being deployed across Canada with the help of our regional offices. Along with Moncton, Montréal is the site of one of VIA Rail’s two customer service centres.

Maintenance centers

Montréal

Montréal is home to VIA Rail’s largest maintenance centre, with an average of 10 trains stopping each day for inspection and repairs. This is mainly due to its position on the Québec City–Windsor Corridor—the railway’s busiest route—and because it is a departure/arrival point for eastward and westward trains.

In addition to carrying out most major maintenance work and minor train configuration modification projects, the Montréal Maintenance Centre also has a production line that refurbishes our cars and locomotives. Many major renovation projects have been completed at this centre, including the recent refurbishment of HEPI and LRC cars and the transformation of 12 Renaissance cars into accessible cars. The Montréal maintenance centre also plays a significant role in VIA Rail’s Heritage Program, which is currently revamping our EPA42 locomotives and our economy and business class cars (HEP2).

Size : 35 000 m2
Fleet assigned : 301 train cars
Infrastructures : 8 locomotive bays,8 cars bays
Certification : ISO 14001, the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (to reduce environmental footprint).

Toronto

In terms of size, number of employees, and number of projects in progress, Toronto’s centre is tied with Montréal’s as VIA Rail’s largest maintenance centre. This is mainly due to its position on the Québec City–Windsor Corridor—the railway’s busiest route—and because it is a departure/arrival point for westward trains.

Size : 31 248 m2
Fleet assigned : 51
Infrastructures : 8 locomotive bays,8 cars bays

Winnipeg

Our Winnipeg maintenance centre is mainly dedicated to servicing the Winnipeg–Churchill train and ensuring the reliability of trains and locomotives travelling to Toronto and Vancouver. If necessary, the centre’s team also performs minor repairs on The Canadian when it stops in Winnipeg.

Vancouver

Because it is located near the terminus of the Great Western Way route, Vancouver’s maintenance centre performs most service and repair work on The Canadian’s train cars. It is also the only VIA Rail maintenance centre that replaces bearings.
