Here’s what you need to know:    

  • Lakeshore East customers can jump on a train every 15 minutes on weekend afternoons and evenings between Durham College Oshawa GO and Union Station  

  • An improvement compared to the previous 30 minutes service

Saving money with transit  

Speaking of choice, using transit across the region is now as simple as tapping your debit or credit card.  

Seniors and students can benefit from significant discounts when paying with a PRESTO card.  

What’s more – kids 12 and under ride for free on GO Transit! Adults in the group can hop from GO to TTC for free with Ontario’s One Fare Program – and all it takes is a single tap.
