Kids 12 and Under Ride Free On GO This Family Day Weekend 

Ontario is making the entire GO Transit network, including the UP Express, free this Family Day holiday weekend for kids 12 years old and under.

Kids ride free from Saturday, February 17, to Monday, February 19, on all GO train lines and bus routes. Families are encouraged to take GO transit to explore the fun activities happening across the region throughout the weekend.

Making public transit more convenient, available and affordable is part of Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.

“Whether you’re taking the kids skating at Ontario Place or going to visit family in Oshawa, GO Transit is a great way to get around this Family Day weekend. Convenient, affordable, efficient public transit is key to managing congestion and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. I encourage everyone to see how we’re transforming GO Transit with more trips and better services for riders as they enjoy our region with their families.”

Kathryn McGarry

Minister of Transportation
