Metrolinx wants you to remember the One Fare Program that will launch next Monday, February 26, 2024!

The province – in collaboration with Metrolinx and local transit agencies – is working to connect communities across the region. Through Ontario’s One Fare Program, transferring from one transit system to another will be simpler, more convenient and more affordable.

It is just that simple.

Ontario’s One Fare Program allows transit users to only pay once when travelling between the TTC, GO Transit and participating transit systems like Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit.  

When travelling between systems, the discount will be applied automatically when you tap a PRESTO card, credit or debit, or PRESTO in Google Wallet to connect between GO Transit, TTC and all participating transit systems.

What you need to know:

  • Free transfers: For trips between the TTC and GO Transit, your TTC fare is free, regardless of travel direction and the cost of your TTC trip is discounted from your overall trip cost. For trips between the TTC and other local transit systems, the second fare of your trip is free.
  • Transfer flexibility: Transfers are valid for two hours when trips start on local transit and three hours when you tap on a GO bus or train.
  • Proof of payment: The payment method you use to tap is your proof of payment. Customers paying with PRESTO in Google Wallet, credit or debit card, must tap on and off with the same card.

One far will get you into Toronto and almost wherever you want to go in that City.

For an adult who commutes five days a week, the One Fare Program could save them up to$1,600 per year.

    I watched an Amazon series recently about a plane load of people on a return flight from the Caribbean that landed five years later in the U.S. but the passengers only thought the flight took a few hours. The few times I am forced onto a GO Train “By she who must be obeyed” (Horace Rumpole) I experience the complete opposite. When oh when will we ever see European style high speed rail in Ontario?

    Yvonne: from what I can see you pay for your Go Train fare (people 65 or older get a 55% discount) and then transit at your destination is included if your destination is participating (TTC, Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit).
