#GOThisSummer with GO Transit
So where are you headed? A wine tour with girlfriends for the day in Niagara-on-the-Lake? A family day trip to enjoy the north in Barrie? A trip to downtown Toronto for a Blue Jays or Toronto FC game? All are so easily accessible on GO Transit. And best of all…you don’t have to do the driving so you can actually enjoy the scenery!…
Yes, that’s me on a GO Transit mini-adventure. Day trip friendly!
The GO Transit experience…
- Plan your route. I went to the GO Transit website and used the Trip Planner powered by Triplinx. It was straightforward and easy. The fares are quite reasonable and really inspired me to leave the minivan at home!
- Go to the station. Like TTC or any bus service, you simply purchase your ticket (you can do it at a counter with a real person or use an automated machine outside the service desk) and wait for your train.
- Board the GO Train and enjoy the ride.
My GO Transit getaway was actually a Mother/daughter adventure. My daughter took this picture of the tracks and CN Tower, proving that not only can she spot one of Toronto’s most famous landmarks, but that she can also appreciate the experience of seeing the train tracks.
We talked about how trains used to be the only form of ground transportation available to long-distance travellers, as well as about how many more forms of transportation have come to market since those days.
But I really appreciated the experience of riding the GO Train with my daughter sitting across from me (rather than her being in the backseat), and the ease of getting from place to place comfortably. I wasn’t worried about missing an exit. Or the traffic. Or speaking over my shoulder to have a conversation with her. I could enjoy a mother/daughter afternoon of simply being together; giving her my full attention. All because I chose GO Transit.
We live for the weekends, especially during the summer. And planning them is just half the fun. Exploring the big city or biking through wine country – it’s good to have weekend options and we give them to you. Toronto to Nigara. Barrie to Toronto. Either way, we’ll take you there. Seasonal weekend train service runs until Sept 7. Discover a different side of GO this summer at gotransit.com/getaway
