Reimagining the way we travel for Canadians

Beginning in 2022, we will welcome our passengers on the first of 32 trains of the new Quebec City-Windsor corridor fleet, where we carried more than 4.7 million passengers in 2019.

In addition to being one of the most environmentally friendly fleets in North America, it will offer an unparalleled, barrier-free and fully accessible travel experience, transforming the journey of Canadians.

It's time to reimagine the way we move Canadians to deliver new levels of comfort, accessibility and sustainability.

New Fleet Features
Barrier-free and fully accessible

Our new fleet will provide a barrier-free, fully accessible travel experience that better meets the needs of people with disabilities and their support persons with, among other things, wheelchair lifts in every accessible car, mobility assistance spaces, large fully accessible washrooms and Braille and raised signage.

A cleaner fleet with advanced diesel engines

Our new engines will meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 emission standards, reducing particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 85-95%.

A more comfortable travel experience

On board these new state-of-the-art trains, passengers will enjoy wider aisles, extendable tray tables and comfortable, ergonomic seats, among other features.

A more productive and connected travel experience

In addition to offering new levels of comfort and accessibility, our new fleet will include privacy pods in business class and improved Wi-Fi connectivity.

A more energy efficient fleet

In addition to using energy-efficient LED lighting, our new fleet will be bi-directional, reducing turnaround time and operating time with engines running.

Timeline and Key Milestones

Representing an investment of $989 million, the project will result in 32 new train sets that will provide our passengers with a smoother ride for the next 30+ years.
