Today, Transportation Minister Jeff Yurek, and Metrolinx President and CEO Phil Verster announced that kids 12 and under can travel for free on all GO Transit trains and buses starting March 9th, 2019.

Children can already travel on the TTC and UP Express for free.

“Letting kids travel on GO for free will make taking transit easier and more affordable for parents and kids,” said Minister Yurek. “Whether you’re visiting family or taking a trip to the mall, free trips for children will help families save money and offer parents a low-stress alternative to driving.”

While children 12 and under can already travel for free on the TTC and UP Express, in Hamilton only children under 5 years of age are free on Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) buses.
