Via Rail Trains – Mobility for People with Disabilities


If you are a person with a disability who wants to take the train and you need some special accomodations or an escort, VIA Rail does allow an attendant to travel for free in the same class as the ticket purchased. 

There are some requirements to be eligible for these free services so make sure you have  a doctor’s note or a note from an Association for Community Living.  Find all the guidelines here. 

As with airlines, it is important that you ensure the Doctor writes the letter in accordance with the guidelines (sometimes you will have to remind them).
