Holiday GO & UP Express Service

TORONTO - December 20, 2017: It’s a busy time of year for travellers and Metrolinx wants to ensure customers get home safely during the holiday season.

GO Transit will again offer additional late-night service and free rides after 7:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. The schedule of additional late-night service is listed below.

And for the first time, UP Express will also be free after 7:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve.

A few reminders to customers:

  • Plan ahead for your trip home from the GO parking lot—a train ride will not sober you up.
  • Keep your celebrations polite and your ‘spirits’ bottled up. Drinking on the train is not allowed.
  • If you need assistance, please look out for our Transit Safety Officers, extra officers will be on duty to help you get home safely.
