The Canadian Press:
Via Rail will offer free basic rail travel for military personnel and veterans again this summer (2009).
The company says the free tickets will be offered in July to all serving and former members of the Forces, with other discounts available for their dependents.
A soldier or vet travelling free will be able to bring up to five family members along at half price.
They will also be offered half-price tickets for travel in business, sleeper and touring classes.
The Crown corporation offered a similar program last July and says about 60,000 people took the deal.
