Do you have a permit?

We’re committed to ensuring that our services, parking lots and buildings are accessible to all of our customers.

GO riders with accessible parking permits need access to these designated spots. When dropping off or picking up passengers please do not wait in or block off any section of the accessible parking area.

When parking in these spots, please ensure your permit can be seen by our officers. Otherwise, your car may be ticketed or towed.

We thank you for your kindness to fellow riders!

You asked, we answered!

Q: We’re planning a trip and don’t have a car, so we’ll be using public transport to get everywhere. Is there an easy way to get schedules for GO and other transit agencies?

A: We’ve got your perfect solution! You can use Triplinx, the official transit trip planner for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. You can enter your departure location and destination info, and Triplinx will give you all the information you need to get from A to B. Click the Triplinx widget on the gotransit.com homepage.

Q: If I have a default on my PRESTO card and will be taking a train trip outside of that set default, what do I have to do to be charged the correct amount?

A: If you are not taking your usual default trip, when you go to tap ON, simply press the OVERRIDE button on the PRESTO machine and then tap ON. At the end of your trip, remember to tap OFF. You don’t have to worry about losing your default setting; the system will reset your default for your next trip.

Save Time with PRESTO

How does a few extra minutes to sit down and have a bite to eat, sound to you? Probably as good as spending a few more minutes hugging your kids or playing with your dog. With online options like Autoload and Add-Value loads for your PRESTO card, you can skip the lineups, save time and always have funds on your card.

Take a few minutes now to read about online loading options. A few minutes now can save you a lot of time in the future — so you can spend more time doing the things you love.

Bus Safety and You

You’ve had a busy day at school and can’t wait to sit back and relax on your trip home. You made it to your seat and didn’t think about the things you did to get there safely. Being safe is simply common sense to you.

But when you look out the window and see someone walking in front of the bus, distracted by their phone, you realize that being aware of your surroundings and staying safe may not be second nature for everyone. That’s why we’re reminding students and customers to be safe around buses and at busy bus terminals—because the best commute is a safe one.
