We want to give airport employees a better transit experience, so we’re funding an innovative GO fare pilot. 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.
