SYSTRA Canada has been a key partner to VIA Rail Canada (VIA), main rail intercity operator, over the last decades.
OUR COMMITMENTS TO RAIL PASSENGERS
Through its multi-year master service agreements for rail engineering services, we have assisted VIA in delivering its commitments to rail passengers.
Whether it is through studies, design work, technical assistance, construction supervision or else, our team takes pride in contributing to VIA’s successes by offering a combination of knowledge of North American standards and guidelines mixed with best practices experiences from other jurisdictions.
Our intercity solutions include:
- Ridership forecasting;
- Operating, maintenance, and asset management strategy;
- Identification of sustainable solutions;
- Procurement strategy;
- Innovative design solutions.
STANDARDS & GUIDELINES
The Intercity passengers services are governed by the same standards and guidelines as heavy rail transportation since there is not, to date, a rail infrastructure dedicated solely to passenger services: AREMA (infrastructure), TIG (track inspection), CROR (operating rules), AAR (rolling stock), FRA.
SYSTRA Canada has been the carrier of the knowledge of these standards within the group for many years, hence addressing not only domestic opportunities but also international ones since these North American standards/guidelines are widely used in other jurisdictions than Canada.
