GO Transit Child Fare - Kids GO Free!


Travelling on the GO is even easier and more affordable since kids 12 and under always ride free on all GO Trains and Buses!

Masks are optional but welcome on GO Transit. Customers are encouraged to respect their fellow riders' personal choices.

Travel with the family for less!

Sit back, relax and spend some quality time together as a family on the GO. That’s not all, you can save even more with PRESTO Perks. Find out how you can show your PRESTO card to get discounts at some of Toronto’s top attractions (subject to modified operating hours).

Drive less and play more

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

  • Encourage your kids to look for interesting landmarks or animals during the ride. Save money and bring some snacks that you know your family enjoys.

  • 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

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 10:00 am and between 3:00 and 7:00 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 TTC & UP Express, 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 co-fare discount when they use a PRESTO card.
  • Adults travelling with children can use PRESTO, or they can purchase single-ride adult tickets or day passes at the station or Ticket Vending Machines. Plus, pre-buy your GO train or bus ticket online here!

  • 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.
