Via Rail announced an unbeatable deal for young travellers Tuesday night — a rail pass that will allow those between the ages of 12 and 25 to travel on all routes, as much as they want for the month of July.
And here’s the best part: it’s just $150.
The deal is in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday celebration this July.
The pass is for travel in economy class only. But don’t fret if you’re over 25 years old.
If you’re 26 or older and are a full-time student you can snag the deal with a valid International Student Identification Card (ISIC).

Via Rail said their technical teams are working to find the source of the problem.
