Fun things to do on your journey

Here’s some fun things that your family can do during your GO Train or Bus ride:

  • Bring along some games that are light and easy to pack such as cards or a small board game
  • Keep the kids entertained along your whole journey with our colouring pages
  • Encourage your kids to look for interesting landmarks or animals during the ride
  • Save some money by bringing some snacks that you know your family can safely enjoy onboard our vehicles
  • Print out a map of your trip and count the stations to your destination and point out fun things along the way

Know before you GO:

  • Kids 12 and under ride free on GO Train and GO Buses
  • 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. For other transit agencies, please check their site to see if it is applicable for them.
  • If a child transfers to or from another local transit partner 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
  • There are so many adventures to embark on, including these options that provide even more savings with PRESTO Perks!
  • 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.
  • Strollers can be brought onto the GO Train and GO Bus at any time. Check out our ‘Travelling with a Stroller’ tips.
  • Learn more about travelling safe on GO Transit
