Metrolinx raising fares, September 2



At its meeting, Thursday, June 28, the Metrolinx board of directors approved a staff proposal to raise GO Transit and [Union Pearson Express[(http://www.upexpress.com/) fares, starting Saturday, September 2. By increasing fares, Metrolinx says, it can “maintain and improve our service as we expand our transit network to serve more customers.”

It’s freezing fares for short-distance trips. This means adult single fares do not increase between $5.02 (the minimum fare) and $5.65 for a passenger paying with a paper ticket. Short-distance fares for children, students and seniors also remain the same as currently.

Fares for trips that currently cost more than $5.02 with PRESTO fare cards and $5.65 without PRESTO increase by about three per cent.

Other fare types will increase similarly, including “concession fares” (senior and student fares) and package pricing (group fares and family fares).

Since the fares vary, depending on how far each passengers travels, the cost of a single adult ride for a passenger using a paper ticket, increases incrementally.

Sample fares (Current and new adult fares with and without PRESTO):

  • Between Union Station and Bloor GO Station: Current without - $5.30; New without - $5.30; Current with - $4.71; New without - $4.71.
  • Union Station and Cooksville GO Station: Current without - $6.75; New without - $6.95; Current with - $6; New without - $6.17.
  • Union Station and Rouge Hill GO Station: Current without - $7.05; New without - $7.25; Current with - $6.26; New without - $6.44.
  • Union Station and Oakville GO Station: Current without - $8.65; New without - $8.90; Current with - $7.68; New without - $7.91.
  • Union Station and Meadowvale GO Station: Current without - $9.20; New without - $9.50; Current with - $8.17; New without - $8.44.
  • Union Station and Georgetown GO Station: Current without - $11.10; New without - $11.45; Current with - $9.86; New without - $10.17.
  • Union Station and Allandale Waterfront GO Station: Current without - $13.55; New without - $13.95; Current with - $12.03; New without - $12.35.
  • Union Station and Toronto Pearson International Airport: Current without - $12; New without - $12.35; Current with - $9; New with - $9.25.
