GO Transit withdrawing bus service
from York University, January 5



Update — Wednesday, February 26, 2020, 5:58 p.m.: The Government of Ontario and Metrolinx have announced that they are ending the discount double-fare program Tuesday, March 31. Starting Wednesday, April 1, passengers heading to and from York, who are transferring between GO and TTC, pay full fare on both systems.


Update — Monday, April 1, 2019: Starting Saturday, April 6, the TTC’s portion of the TTC - GO - UP Express co-fare increases by 10 cents to $1.60. The GO / UPX discount remains the same.


GO Transit buses will no longer serve York University’s Keele campus, starting Saturday, January 5, 2019.

That day, GO buses that currently operate through the campus York start and end their trips at Highway 407 Station on the TTC’s Line 1 Yonge - University subway, instead.

After the TTC extended the subway to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station in December 2017, GO rerouted some of its buses to stop in the bus terminal at Highway 407 Station, along their way to or from York. Starting in January, all buses that now operate on the campus will operate to the station. GO buses no longer operate along Keele Street between Highway 407 and York or pick up and drop off passengers on Keele at Snidercroft Road / Great Gulf Drive or Steeles Avenue West.

This affects service along these routes:

  • 25F Waterloo / Mississauga (Fridays and Sundays only);
  • 45 Mississauga / York U;
  • 46 Oakville / York U;
  • 47 Hamilton / York U;
  • 48 Guelph / York U;
  • 51 Pickering / York U;
  • 52 Oshawa / York U; and
  • 54 Markham / York U.

(GO will likely also rename these routes.)

GO trains along the 65 Barrie line continue to serve York University GO Station.

The GO fare to the Hwy 407 Station bus terminal is the same as it is for York University and the stops on Keele as they are all in the same GO fare zone.

You’ll need to pay a separate fare if you’ll be transferring between GO and TTC but if you use a PRESTO farecard, you can get a discount:

  • Adults can save $1.50 off their fare and seniors / students can save $0.55 off the already discounted fare.
  • PRESTO automatically applies the discount as a deduction from your TTC fare when you use GO first and as a deduction from your GO fare when you use the TTC first.

York Region Transit withdrew its buses from the campus starting Sunday, September 2.

When GO retreats, university officials will have almost reached their target of a bus-free campus. After January 5, buses along just two TTC routes — 41 Keele and 106 Sentinel — travel along campus roadways. Brampton Transit also continues to serve York passengers along the 501A / 501C Züm Queen route.
