As a member of CAUBO, Carleton University faculty and professional services staff are eligible for discounted train fares with VIA Rail Canada for both business and personal travel. The CAUBO corporate rate for VIA Rail applies to all train tickets except Escape fares and Prestige Sleeper Class. It also does not apply to promotional fare requiring a discount code, multi-purpose pass products (such as, but not limited to, BizPak, VIA 6 Pak and Commuter ePass), and any other promotion, offer, discount fare where the conditions specify that it cannot be combined with business rate discounts. The discount is applied to the best available fare at the time of booking or purchase of the train ticket. The booking must be made by the faculty or professional services staff member. You are also able to receive the discounted fare on 3 additional passenger tickets if they are travelling with the faculty or professional services staff member. Travel passes and Bizpak are excluded from the discount offered by VIA Rail Canada. The discount can be applied to leisure as well as corporate travel.
This direct link to VIA’s online booking system has the discounted fares already applied. If purchasing the train ticket in person, or on VIA’s public website, please indicate the CAUBO corporate code: 710810, to receive the discounted fare.
When boarding you may be asked to provide your campus card, a business card or photo ID.
