Save with PRESTO

Customers tapping their PRESTO card at a station

Each time you travel on GO, your fare is deducted from your PRESTO card and you receive fare discounts based upon the number of trips you take within a calendar month. Learn more by calculating your fare.

 

Adult Fares

You save with PRESTO whether you take a single trip or commute the entire month.

If you take the same GO trip each time you travel within a calendar month, your GO fare* will be:

Number of Trips Discount++

1 through 35

11.15% off**

36 to 40

87.75% off**

41 and more

100% off**

 

If you do not take the exact same trip each time you travel on GO within a calendar month, your first 35 rides on GO will be 11.15%** off the single-ride adult fare. For trips 36 and onwards, your discount will be based on the value of the trips you’ve taken that month.

 

Getting Student, Child, or Senior Fares with Your PRESTO Card

To receive a full-time student (ages 13+), child (ages 6 to 12), or senior (ages 65+) discount with your PRESTO card, take your card to a GO Station Attendant or to a GO ticket agency and have your card set to student, child, or senior.

Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your card to be set to your discount status. Within 30 days of changing the setting, you must travel and tap on at a Fare Payment machine or a Balance Checker machine.

Co-Fares

With a PRESTO card, you get an automatic, increased discount when transferring from the GO network (both trains and buses) to local transit, as long as the transfer happens within 3 hours on GO and 2 hrs for a trip starting on TTC.

Customers can travel seamlessly between GO, UP Express and TTC with their PRESTO cards, which will automatically charge only $1.50 for the TTC portion of the trip. That’s equivalent to half the price of an adult TTC fare paid with cash, tokens or PRESTO.
