Travellers who take longer trips on GO Transit – will be paying more next year.
Metrolinx has approved a five percent fare increase effective February 1st, 2016 – for journeys currently costing $5.70 or more.
Riders who pay between $5.70 and $6.50 now – will see a 40 cent increase.
That’ll be 50 cents for trips costing between $6.51 and $8.25 – and 60 cents – for trips costing more than $8.25.
But there’s a bit of good news for Presto users : the Metrolinx board approved an increase in the discount for users of the card – of just over one percent.
Metrolinx says the increases are expected to bring in just over $24 million – to be used for service improvements.
