Metrolinx announces partnership with Turo
GO's official car sharing partner provides customers with new option to continue their journey.
Jul 17, 2023
Metrolinx is partnering with Turo, Canada’s leading car sharing marketplace, to provide customers with new possibilities to extend their journey beyond GO’s network.
Starting today (July 17), Turo vehicles can be delivered to GO stations across the network, making it convenient for customers to connect to their next destination.
Interested in travelling from Durham College Oshawa GO to explore Prince Edward County? This convenient transportation option is perfect for those who need a car for the day or the weekend.
Turo is a car sharing marketplace, aiming to provide customers with an easy complement to their journey. Turo's community of trusted hosts give guests the opportunity to choose the exact make and model they want for any occasion.
Aligned with Metrolinx’s focus on sustainability, Turo offsets 100 per cent of its estimated global carbon emissions. Guests also have the alternative to choose from a large selection of electric or hybrid vehicles.
In addition to addressing first and last mile travel challenges, this is just one more exciting way customers can choose to extend their trip options at GO stations across the network.
Booking a Turo vehicle
To request a vehicle, customers can either download the Turo app, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, or book on Turo’s website.
Simply type in your nearest GO station and your travel date to begin browsing thousands of cars shared by local hosts.
When it is time to pick up your car, check in with the app, grab the keys from the host and start your adventure.
Turo vehicles will only be parked in GO station lots for a maximum of 48 consecutive hours once a car reservation request is received.
