Property use at GO Transit

During an average rush hour, as many as 5,000 GO customers pass through our stations. There is an exciting opportunity to create new and innovative experiences for these passengers by activating our GO stations.

Weekends provide an opportune time to transform GO parking lots into exciting outdoor community event spaces. There are locations across the GO network available for reimagining. Parking lots on the Milton, Kitchener, Barrie, Richmond Hill and Stouffville lines have reduced weekend service, and are prime properties to hold dynamic events in your community.

Pop-up events at UP Express
