TORONTO - Via Rail Canada says it will be moving its operations out of Toronto's Union Station during the G20 Summit at the end of June.
Via says it will use suburban stations from June 24 through 27.
Stations in Oakville, Brampton, Oshawa and north Toronto will be used during the summit period.
Passengers with Via connections will be shuttled between suburban stations to their connecting trains.
Via says it will make every effort to minimize shuttle travel times, but advises that travellers should expect delays.
Additionally, due to extremely low advance ticket sales, Via says it will be operating a weekend schedule during those dates.
