Back To School Outfits
Going back to school is a great time to test out a new look. Whether it’s your child’s first day back to school or YOUR first day back to post-secondary school, you want to choose that perfect first day outfit and we’ve got some fantastic options to show off your love for transit.
Cool Kids’ Apparel
When your kids go back to school, they want to look cool! Little GO Transit fans will love showing up to school in GO-branded apparel.
Great for keeping kids warm on cool fall mornings, and letting all their friends know that they’re a fan of trains!
GO Bucket Hat - Youth
September is still bright and sunny, so it’s important to send your kids with a hat to wear during outdoor time. The GO Bucket Hat will keep them looking cool while shading them from the rays.
Awesome Adult Apparel
Make a statement on your first day - or first day back - at college or university. You’re a commuter and you’re proud of it! When you show up wearing your GO-branded apparel, it just might be the perfect icebreaker to meet people in your new classes. “Hey, cool hoodie. You ? Me too. Which route do you take?” Boom! Now you’re commuter buddies.
This bold graphic tee is a great choice for warm September days, and a perfect first day of school shirt. When the weather turns cool, just bring along one of our hoodies to layer on top!
If you’re all about taking the train, you’ll love wearing the GO Train Hoodie on your commute to school. It’s so comfy that it will be easy to have a nap during your early morning or after class ride.
For a more general nod to your GO Transit train or bus commute, choose the equally cozy GO Hoodie with its bold GO logo. It says, “I ride the GO. Do you?”
Perfect for shading yourself from the sun while walking across campus, or hiding that bedhead when you have early morning classes!
GO Pack Your Lunch!
If you’re a parent, it’s time to gear up for another school year of packing lunches for your kids. While we can’t help you figure out what to feed any picky eaters, we can help you pack it up in a cool new lunch bag that will make it look exciting!
Are you making your own list of back to school necessities for college or university? You have a lot of expenses, but a great way to save money during the school year is by bringing a packed lunch instead of eating out. And, remember, a reusable lunch bag and water bottle reduces waste, which is good for the environment - just like taking public transportation!
Save money by purchasing the GO Lunch Bundle - for yourself or your kids. The bundle includes a lunch bag and a water bottle, for less than purchasing them separately. It’s everything you need for a lunch-on-the-go that shows your love of GO!
You can’t focus on your classes when you’re thirsty! Keep cool and hydrated while showing your support for public transportation. Just choose your favourite logo: GO Water Bottle, PRESTO Water Bottle, Metrolinx Water Bottle, UP Water Bottle
Stylish School Supplies
School supplies don’t have to be boring! Protect your tech and stay organized with cool Metrolinx merch. Studying is more fun when your stuff looks this good!
Keep your tablet safe in a fun and colourful case on your way to school or anytime. Great for when you’re on the go with kids, too!
High school and post-secondary students - protect your laptop in this stylish case during your commute to school and throughout the day!
Great for kids, teens, and post-secondary students alike! The GO Pencil Case will keep your supplies organized with a style that’s fun for transit fans.
Didn’t have a chance to go to FAN EXPO Canada to pick up the limited-edition DC-themed PRESTO cards? Well, we have great news for you – the remaining DC collectible PRESTO cards will be available at the pop-up shop while quantities last. Be sure to come by!
