GO Transit fare hike in effect starting Saturday

TORONTO, Ont. – It will cost you more to ride GO Transit as of Saturday.

The fare increase is the first in two years. The increase ranges from 30 cents to 40 cents depending on the length of your ride.

In January, Metrolinx approved an increase using a “fare by distance” approach.

As a result, GO riders who travel a greater distance will have to pay 30 cents more for rides between $4.20 and $5.50, an additional 35 cents for rides between $5.51 and $7.00, and 40 cents more for anything over $7.00

GO said this will generate around $19.5-million per a year, which they hope will manage costs as the agency deals with unprecedented ridership growth.
