Toronto, Ontario – GO Transit train and bus rides in Ontario’s Greater Toronto Area will be free on New Year’s Eve, starting from 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 31 until service ends for the evening.

“Leave your car at home and let GO get you to and from the festivities this year,” said managing director Gary McNeil. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide this annual free service for our customers and offer them a safe and comfortable alternative to driving.”

Some regularly-scheduled Lakeshore train lines from Union Station will be leaving later than usual, with connecting buses holding until the train arrives. A special late-night bus trip will depart from York Mills GO Bus Terminal at 2:10 a.m., making all regular stops to Brampton.

Other bus trip times may vary depending on the route. Customers should check with GO Transit before making plans.
