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
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:
- Get a GO-approved student ID either through GO Transit or at your school.
- Pick up a re-loadable PRESTO card.
- Set up a post-secondary student fare on your PRESTO card with a GO-approved student ID. Plus, make sure you always have enough money on your card to get where you need to go.
- Remember to always travel with your student ID and show it for fare inspection.
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.
Find your study time.
You can never be too ready for a big test. Spend more time on studying the material and less time studying the traffic. Study on the GO. Find your GO time.
