New Burlington transit stop on GO Bus #40!

All GO Bus #40 trips now stop at the Dundas St. @ Hwy. 407 Park & Ride in Burlington. This gives airport employees in Burlington a new direct and affordable way to get to Pearson Airport. Under the Airport Employee GO Transit Fare Program, employees will pay $5.20 each way using their special PRESTO card! Plan your trip now.

We want to give airport employees a better transit experience, so we’re funding an innovative GO fare pilot. Starting December 12, choose GO Transit for your daily work commute as an alternative to driving, and save 50 percent off regular PRESTO fares when you use a special PRESTO card to travel on eligible GO trips. By using PRESTO, you can save even more when connecting to or from GO Transit with co-fares from participating transit agencies.
