  1. Corridor

    The Corridor is a Via Rail passenger train service area in the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Corridor is used by Via to refer to all Via inter-city passenger trains which start and end within the geographic region known as the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor. Other inter-city trains from outside the Corridor may have their terminus at stations in the Corridor, such as the Canadian and the Ocean, but are marketed by their respective train names and are not considered to be Corridor services. The Corridor service area has the heaviest passenger train frequency in Canada, with 36 Via trains traversing the route daily. About 67% of Via's revenue comes from Corridor routes. Via runs a mix of local-service and express trains in the Corridor. Most of the trackage is owned by CN, although Via also owns two former freight lines, one from Smiths Falls, Ontario, to Coteau-du-Lac, Quebec via Ottawa; and one from Chatham, Ontario to Tecumseh, Ontario. It also runs on Canadian Pacific rails between Smiths Falls and Brockville, Ontario. Prior to Via's formation in 1978, CN Rail operated trains on the same tracks and CP Rail also offered limited service. All trains are identified by number; however, in previous schedules these trains were named as well.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
