Drive less and play more
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. Download our GO colouring book for added fun!
- 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.
- Take a trip to SkyZone in Whitby, Barrie’s Waterfront or The Markham Museum – the opportunities are endless!
- Discover more adventures your family can take by exploring our Summer Family Fun Finder provided by CBC.
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 7:30 pm, we ask that they use the lower level. The upper level of all trains is designated as a Quiet Zone during rush hour.
- If a child transfers to or from a local transit service or the TTC, 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.
