Wondering when your next bus will arrive? Text or call our Where’s My Bus service to find out.

We’re making travelling with us easier, faster and better. Where’s My Bus will tell you when your GO bus is going to arrive at your street stop in real-time. It’s also available for most of the school stops our buses serve.

Great news!

Starting January 27 through summer 2020, we’re installing new GO bus stop signs with Where’s My Bus ID numbers, making it even easier to find out when your next bus is going to arrive.

The signs have a new look: black and white colour scheme and reflective elements for greater visibility.

The new look also includes a (T), for Transit, that helps makes it easier to identify a transit stop or station, providing access to a connected, regional transit network.

Sign up for On the GO alerts so you’ll know when we start replacing the signs on your route.
