Considering using GO Trains? detailed pricing, multiple trip discounts, parking, and comparison to VIA

By shost at 5:22 pm on Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Some pricing of single, multiple ride, and monthly passes on both GO and VIA (in case you were considering the more comfortable, and faster ride on VIA 86/87 instead). Also recall some of the options below have tax benefits/deductions:

                            Single   10-pack       Mnthly Pass      VIA supersaver        VIA 20 pak

Kitchener        $14.60      $135            $482                   $25.99                       $328.83

Guelph            $11.70      $108.25       $386                   $22.60                       $299.45

Parking: Guelph parking can be had at various parking lots, the least expensive lots are $35/month for a pass and most expensive $80/month.

Guelph parking details can be found here: http://guelph.ca/uploads/PDF/Parking/Bylaw036363.pdf

Transit: Guelph has yet to announce any integration measures (reduced transit fares, or parking) but this is in the works. Kitchener just announced theirs (see post below for details)

Clearly there are options to reduce your cost and time, which each person will analyze and choose based on their situation. Choose wisely :)

Thanks to reader Nick for the tip:

Waterloo region has announced reduced transit fares, and parking options (now and in the future) for GO patrons at Kitchener:

123 parking spaces not a bad start for Kitchener.
