VIA Rail is modernizing!

VIA Rail is getting ready to receive a brand new fleet of trains! In a few years, we will be welcoming our passengers on 32 new trains that will be operating in Quebec and Ontario. These trains, which will replace our aging fleet, will reduce our ecological footprint (thanks to some of the most energy-efficient technologies available). We are proud of this technological choice, which will be four to five times less polluting than other modes of transportation, including cars.

To prepare for this new fleet, VIA Rail needs to add engineering resources to meet these new challenges. This will create staff movements as well as new carrer opportunities for those who wish to be part of a sustainable, modern and growing transportation industry.
