“VIA is making a company-wide transition to a new operating system which encourages a self-serve model.” Explains Kelly Deeks-Johnson, Tourism and Economic Development Manager for Town of St. Marys. “Continuing to offer high-quality customer service is still a priority for us, VIA and Metrolinx so we are ensuring a staff member is available to answer questions and assist patrons as they purchase their own tickets.”
