VIA Rail Windsor Ottawa recent customer reviews

My train from ottawa to toronto was the better experience. Had more leg room and more comfortable seats with more space. The older trains are really uncomfortable for long journeys

Daniel B.January 1, 2024

Uncomfortable seats on train. Not meant for more that 2hr ride. Station staff are rude, onboard staff better. Food terrible. I'm fine with masking, but told to mask up between sandwich bike and coffee drink was over the top.
