Guelph Transit and Metrolinx
revising GO "co-fare" program, April 13



Guelph Transit and Metrolinx are revising the “co-fare” program in Guelph, starting Monday, April 13.

That day, GO Transit passengers can take advantage of the discounted 60 cents fare on Guelph Transit buses by presenting:

  • A valid single-ride GO ticket when connecting from a GO train or GO bus at Guelph Central Station only every day. (If you have to travel on more than one Guelph Transit bus to reach the station, ask your GT driver for a transfer.)
  • A valid GO day-pass when connecting to or from a GO train or GO bus at Guelph Central Station only every day. (If you have to travel on more than one Guelph Transit bus to reach the station, ask your GT driver for a transfer.)
  • A PRESTO fare card on buses that Guelph Transit has scheduled to arrive at or depart from Guelph Central Station only between 5:45 a.m. until 7:30 a.m. and between 6:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. (If you use PRESTO, Guelph Transit drivers will not issue you a transfer if you have to ride more than one bus to reach Guelph Central Station. You’ll have to pay the co-fare each time you board another bus.)

Guelph Transit introduced the co-fare program in January 2012 to encourage passengers to transfer between Guelph Transit and GO Transit at Guelph Central Station. Over the past year, Guelph Transit says, the number of passengers fraudulently using the co-fare program has increased. Some passengers have been misusing the program to travel throughout Guelph, rather than connect with GO buses and trains.

The current program rules remain in effect until the end of service on Sunday, April 12, meaning that GO passengers showing a daily ride ticket, multi-ride ticket or PRESTO card still qualify for a $.60 fare on Guelph Transit.

Guelph Transit riders who connect with GO Transit using PRESTO fare cards, but travel outside of the program hours, should buy a monthly Guelph Transit pass or daily tickets, instead of using PRESTO.
