How To Get To College or University by Bus or Train

Student

You’ve decided to commute to college or university, but how should you get there? The cost of gas and parking makes driving expensive. And then there’s the toll on your stress level when you have to start the day dealing with traffic. Luckily, you don’t need a car to GO to school!

We serve schools across the GTHA so it’s easy and convenient to get to campus. You can cut your commuting costs with our Post-Secondary Student fare discount with PRESTO. You’ll save 40% off the full single adult fare, which is important when you’re budgeting all those school expenses!

Instead of stressing, you can nap, text, study, or scroll on the way to school. Enjoy a relaxing and affordable commute when you get to school on GO!

GO Bus and Train Service

Here’s the list of GO Bus routes that primarily serve post-secondary schools. These routes run more often throughout the school year (September to April).

For travel to downtown Toronto campuses, it’s an easy ride to Union Station via GO Train. Then, just transfer to the TTC to get to your school.

Remember to plan your trip and check your schedule before you GO!
