Effective this Sunday, February 1st, 2015, GO Transit is increasing its fares.
The new rates breakdown to a fare increase of 10¢ to 50¢, depending on the distance travelled. For PRESTO card users, the fare increase works out to roughly a 5% increase.
Fares increase as follows:
The minimum fare increases 10¢ to $5.20.
Fares between $5.21 and $6.50 will increase by 30¢.
Fares between $6.51 and $8.25 will increase by 30¢.
Fares over $8.25 will increase by 50¢.
GO Transit has added service to both train and bus services, as well as extending the Richmond Hill Line, and building a new station in Hamilton. The increases in the fares are to help GO Transit pay for these improvements in service.
