VIA RailVIA Rail came to an agreement with the union representing its workers on Sunday, which ended the two-day strike that halted the railway and left thousands of passengers stranded across Canada.

VIA said late Sunday evening that all customers who make reservations for trips taking place between July 26, 2009 and December 14, 2009, will receive a 60% discount. The promotion is valid on adult regular fares in Economy Class (all routes) and in Business Class (Windsor-Quebec City corridor only).

Passengers wishing to take advantage of the discount have until Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. PST to make a booking.
