DRT no longer selling "co-fare" tickets and passes,
starting January 1

Durham Region Transit fare vendors no longer sell DRT “co-fare” tickets and monthly passes after New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31.

Starting New Year’s Day, Tuesday, January 1, PRESTO cardholders can use their cards to transfer between DRT buses and GO Transit trains or buses in Durham Region. Co-fare passengers with a GO Transit single-ride ticket or GO day pass must pay 65 cents cash when boarding a DRT bus to continue their trip.

PRESTO calculates the co-fare discount of 65 cents cash for each trip you take automatically when you transfer between GO and DRT. Simply “tap on” — tap your PRESTO card on the card reader — when boarding a DRT bus. You don’t have to “tap off” when you exit the bus. PRESTO only applies one co-fare discount for each trip you take and you must transfer within 2½ hours to receive the discount.

DRT’s agreement with GO integrates GO bus services as part of the DRT system. The DRT / “One Fare Anywhere” policy makes transit service within Durham Region simple, more convenient and affordable. However, if you’re not using a PRESTO card, you’ll have to prove you paid a DRT fare when you board a GO bus or train or enter the “fare-paid” area of a GO station or terminal.

Start your trip with your DRT ticket, pass or transfer, or you’ll have to pay regular GO bus fares. GO bus drivers will not accept cash fares at DRT rates. Regular GO Bus fares apply for travel outside of Durham Region and for passengers paying cash when boarding GO buses.

When you board a DRT bus, the operator will issue you a transfer for the GO bus. A GO bus transfer ticket with a DRT stamp provides a record of your trip as a GO bus passenger. You must keep the GO ticket with you to prove you paid a fare. The transfer ticket is also accepted as a transfer on all DRT buses providing it meets DRT’s transfer policy. Passengers with GO Bus tickets, paying regular GO Bus fares, are not valid for transfer to DRT buses.
