According to an Oct. 30 announcement, VIA Rail plans to increase the amount of trains running between Toronto and Kingston effective Nov. 5.

VIA Rail will add a tenth round-trip on the Toronto-Kingston-Ottawa route to increase departures, as well as a new evening departure from Toronto to Kingston. 

The new evening departure will leave Toronto at 7:35 p.m., stop in Oshawa, Cobourg and Belleville, arriving in Kingston at 9:53 p.m. 

The changes will also include a new weekend stop in Trenton-Junction and a new daily stop in Guildwood when traveling from Toronto to Ottawa.

In a press release, VIA Rail President and CEO Yves Desjardins-Siciliano said the increased trains would allow more passengers “to make the sensible choice to leave their cars at home.”

“With each added frequency, VIA Rail sees a significant increase in ridership. On this popular segment, the number of travellers has increased by 40 per cent since 2014. With this addition, we will be able to serve more Canadians, help reduce the carbon footprint of their journeys, and improve our financial performance,” Desjardins-Siciliano said.
