VIA invites you to travel off-peak and save. For a round trip you pay only the standard one-way Blue fare plus one-tenth.
To suit your needs, we are offering you 7 to 30-day and one-day round-trip excursion fares.
These two fare plans are available any day except during certain holiday periods (October 8 to 11 incl., December 15 to January 5 incl., April 7 to 11 incl. and May 20 to 23 incl.) until May 31, 1977.
Stopovers are not allowed.
A minimum of $4.00 for the round trip applies.
Children from 5 to 11 years of age will be charged one-half of the adult round-trip fare.
