5 Other VIA Rail Discounts You Can Get If You Missed Out On The $150 Youth Pass

Yesterday, VIA Rail attempted to sell unlimited Youth Passes for $150. The only problem was that they didn't expect half the country to want one. 

So after their website crashed a few times, VIA Rail decided to limit their offer to 1867 passes in total, which sold out very quickly

They may not be as cheap as $150, but some offer up to 50% off and unlike the youth pass, many of these are available for people over the age of 25.
