Passenger rail service in Canada is facing monumental issues. Service cuts are harming riders and causing a decline in ridership. Funding cuts and outdated equipment and infrastructure add to the issue and put workers’ safety at risk. It is time for the federal government to create a national passenger rail service that provides safe, reliable, frequent transportation across the country and good, green, long-term jobs.


Canada needs a legislative framework that protects public, accessible, safe passenger rail and directs immediate public investments to build Canada's passenger rail infrastructure, prioritize passenger trains, and improve services for travellers.
