More frequent and convenient trains

Stratford Gazette

Re: Mayors meet with VIA Rail, news, Sept. 6, 2012

While visiting Stratford in mid-September I noted your article about municipal leaders in the area meeting with VIA Rail about future train service.

I hope this bears positive results. I am a regular attendee of the Stratford Festival and depend on the train or bus service to get to and from the city.

There is now only one bus each way (east-west), and if train service continues to decline, it will make travel awkward and inconvenient.

I am happy to note that VIA is also meeting with Festival officials.

I arrive in Ontario via either London (my preference) or Toronto and would urge that there be more frequent and convenient train connections to Stratford from both directions.
