There is some great new for Go Transit travelers to Toronto with Presto Card. Starting in December, riders who transfer from GO vehicles to subways, streetcars, and busses in Toronto will only pay half of the TTC’s regular fare – and vice versa, to an extent. As per the new arrangement, if you are using Go transit and needs to take TTC, you only have to pay $1.50 instead of $3.00 per ride. Currently, this arrangement is only with surrounding cities such as Mississauga and Brampton. For example, Passengers traveling between Brampton Transit and a GO Transit Train station need to pay the $0.80 co-fare. The co-fare will automatically be calculated on a PRESTO card. Passengers who transfer the other way – from TTC vehicles to GO Transit vehicles or to the UP Express – will also receive a $1.50 discount on secondary fares, which range in price based on distance traveled.
