Via Rail is suspending service on major long-distance train routes for two weeks as Canada grapples with the COVID-19 outbreak.
The cancellations affect the Montreal-Halifax route, known as the Ocean, and the Toronto-Vancouver route, known as the Canadian.
Via Rail said in a statement Friday that the suspensions would be in place until March 27.
“This exceptional preventive measure was made to help minimize the risk of contamination to the best of our ability,” said Cynthia Garneau, president and CEO.
“The government’s recommendations on social distancing and travel limitations is in line with our Illness Control Plan, which is focused on the health and safety of our passengers and employees.”
