The full breakdown of fares will be available on the GO Transit website in the coming days.

The new transit service was first announced last week (Sept. 15), but pricing had to be approved by the transit agency’s board before it could be announced.

All customers leaving from or going to London, St. Marys, or Stratford will need to pay their fare with GO e-tickets. PRESTO is not available for these trips. Printable e-tickets are also available from VIA’s website.
