Know before you GO

Just a few things to keep in mind before you travel: 

  • Children do not require a ticket or PRESTO to travel. 
  • If children are travelling on trains during rush hour – Monday to Friday before 9:30 am and between 3:00 and 6:30 pm - we ask that they use the lower level. The upper level of all trains is designated as the Quiet Zone by Audible during rush hour.
  • Kids 12 and under are also free on UP Express and TTC if you’re looking to extend your trip around Toronto or to the Pearson Airport. If a child transfers to or from another local transit service, they will only be eligible for the free transfer when they use a PRESTO card. 
  • Adults travelling with children can use PRESTO, or they can purchase one of the many fare options that's most suitable for them, including the GO Weekend Pass which provides unlimited travel on weekends from $10 per day.
  • If you plan on bringing a large group of kids, please call us at 1-888-GET-ON-GO (438-6646) in advance so we can help accommodate your group. 
  • We recommend children under 12 are accompanied by an adult when travelling on GO Transit. Children under 6 cannot travel alone.
