Canadians Absolutely Lost Their Fvcking Minds About The $150 VIA Rail Passes Being Sold Out (25 Tweets)

Yesterday, VIA Rail made big waves when they announced the sale of their $150 youth pass.

But quickly after the pass went on sale, it got so much attention that VIA Rail had to temporarily pull the offer. 

(In case you missed out there are 5 other discount passes you can get right here!)

Then later, they proudly announced they would putting the passes back on sale, only now there were only 1867 passes available in total, including the ones that had already been sold.

So within a few minutes all the passes were sold out, and now there's a whole bunch of angry canadians expressing their hate for VIA Rail on Twitter.

The #ViaRail 150 pass is the current Canadian youth's equivalent of a Wonka golden ticket.

Hey @VIA_Rail , will the youth pass still be available to those who have aged 30 years while waiting on hold?

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail Fantastic idea...Brilliant really. Absolutely awful execution. It was advertised to be unlimited and you went back on your word..

Whose smart idea was it to only release 1867 tickets for a population of 35.16 million 🙃 @VIA_Rail#HappyBirthdayCanada

I can't wait for the grandchildren I've raised while on hold with @VIA_Rail to take advantage of the Youth Pass.

Also @VIA_Rail, why were the Canada 150 passes being sold overrnight when half of Canada was sleeping? Did you forget the east coast?

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail this summer pass was a mess so many ppl including myself were trying for more than 6 hours to get the passes #mess release more!!!

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail should be more tickets, online/calling only, a better website that doesn't crash while people are tying to buy your limited tix.

super cool how i was stuck on this page for 5 hours yesterday only to end up not getting a pass :-/ @VIA_Railpic.twitter.com/0wFCxlLuVH

@VIA_Rail wow are you serious? You offered the promo, then retracted it, then brought it back with limited numbers and a broken site.

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail I was SO excited for this promo because it made travelling to the West Coast within reach. Guess that pipe dream is over

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail this is a great promotion, but your website sucks, 1867 isn't a lot of tickets, I get it's the year of confederation but seriously

"Let's sell unlimited travel to youth for $150 in July" "Awesome idea, let's roll it out tomorrow"
-@VIA_Rail, probably

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail please release more 150 passes! I tried for hours with no luck. Very disappointing.

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail waking up to a tarnished reputation like...... https://t.co/lLXnZso0Zr

@VIA_Rail I tried calling so many times yesterday and not once did my call connect. Super sad that I can't get the youth 150 pass #viarail

March 30, 2017

@VIA_Rail terribly planned. everybody didn't get a chance to get one. I'll be sure not to take VIA rail again, not like I ever did anyway

March 30, 2017

March 30, 2017
