Revision to Sarnia to Toronto passenger rail

Eastbound from Sarnia to Toronto

R.A.I.L. proposed a schedule revision, which was well-received by VIA executives in 2013. Effective December 2013, it was made available for online ticket sales access by early 2014. The revised schedule was deemed an effective first collaborative step in creating better passenger rail connections for Sarnia-Lambton… and its American visitors.

Benefits created by this renewed schedule:
• Option of a faster ride from Sarnia to Toronto (transfer from Train 84 to Train 70weekday/80weekends in London) arrival in Toronto will now be 10:04 instead of 10:50 (46mins. faster).
• Option of a stop in Aldershot and if desired, connecting to GO into Niagara
• Option of stops along the way to Toronto are: Woodstock, Brantford, Aldershot, Oakville
• Stops renewed at Wyoming & Strathroy – must book by 5:30 a.m. day of departure (or 40mins. prior to Sarnia departure)

Yes, train 84 still leaves at 6:11am. Help us bring more train traffic to Sarnia.
