Going to school

We have good news! As of March 14, 2022, we've introduced new fare discounts that increase fare savings for teens and post-secondary students travelling on GO Transit with PRESTO.


GO to school for less

Post-Secondary Students

Tuition, books, transit. All of it adds up, which is why full-time post-secondary students, regardless of age, get 40% off the full adult GO fare with PRESTO.

Going to post-secondary school with GO is easy if you’re a university or college student.

Just follow these steps:

Elementary and High School Students

Are you an elementary or high school student, or a teenager aged 13-19 years? Regardless of your school status, you're eligible for the youth fare and can get 40% off the full adult fare when using a PRESTO card.

Set up a youth fare on your PRESTO card with a student ID or a government-issued photo ID. Remember to always travel with applicable identification for fare inspection.

We recommend children under 12 are accompanied by an adult when travelling on GO Transit. Children under 6 cannot travel alone.
