Toronto, 2015-5-1 — /Travel PR News/ — VIA Rail Canada (VIA Rail) announces the launch of a new BizPak rail pass for trips originating from or arriving in London. ”We’re introducing these new BizPak passes in response to demand from our London customers, said Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, President and CEO of VIA Rail. This new offer is part of our desire to make London a hub for VIA Rail’s operations in the South of Ontario within the next few years.”
The BizPak pass provides ten one-way trips in Economy class or six one-way trips in Business class between two pre-determined cities (including points in between). This pass now offers people travelling in Southwestern Ontario the flexibility to take the train when they want to, while making good savings on their transportation costs. No advance booking is required. BizPak credits are automatically tracked so passengers do not need to carry and exchange a voucher in order to obtain their train tickets. The BizPak card is non-transferable and all credits must be used by the person whose name the BizPak has been issued to. A transferable BizPak is also available in the Quebec City – Windsor Corridor.
