May 17, 2023

Summer is coming and so are seasonal, weekend, and holiday GO Bus trips to three of the region’s top attractions – Toronto Premium Outlets, Canada’s Wonderland, and the Toronto Zoo.

Just in time for summer shopping, trips on Route 25L now stop at Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills. This route runs between the University of Waterloo and Square One in Mississauga, making several other stops.

If rollercoasters provide the excitement you are craving, let the GO Bus take you to Canada’s Wonderland. Two routes have been extended past the Highway 407 Bus Terminal to reach the theme park.

Coming from Hamilton, Route 47W has stops in Halton and Peel on the way to Wonderland.

In the other direction, Route 52X starts in Oshawa, with stops in Durham and York Regions.

These buses now stop at York Region Transit’s new Major Mackenzie West Terminal on platforms 10 and 11, conveniently located within a short walk of the park gates.


Finally, customers looking to connect with wildlife, can take the GO Bus to the Toronto Zoo, starting on May 20.

Trips on Route 96Z, travelling between the Finch Bus Terminal in Toronto and Durham College Oshawa GO, with four other stops, will bring animal lovers to the Zoo.

These three seasonal, weekend and holiday services will be in effect until Aug. 27.

Special prices will make weekend fun even more affordable. GO offers a $10 one-day weekendpass and a $15 full weekend package online, for travel on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

As always, for customers travelling with children under 12, Kids GO Free throughout the year.
