    • Group of us took train for day there yesterday. Had a blast. Chuck's Roadhouse, casino, and more
      Sounds like a good use and experience on using that one-day weekend pass! Aside from that, I'm hoping that GO Transit should offer extra service to the 2024 NHL All-Star game in Toronto next month - if I'm not mistaken....

    • I just discovered they got rid of the $15 weekend pass last weekend when I went to book a day pass.
      Heading down on train tomorrow with the $10 option for the day and definitely makes it more attractive if I am heading anywhere within walking distance to Union station especially considering how bad traffic has been lately!

    • Out of curiosity, has anyone used (in certain occassions) in which they use/bought the weekend pass for the purposes of business activities (relating to work) and have it expensed to the company they work for?

    • no wonder public transit in the region (town, city, province or country) sucks.
      it's primary goal shall be focus on provide transit for the benefit of public, be it reduce waste, reduce pollution, relief traffic congestion... etc, to make public happy, and NOT for the benefit of transit agency. unfortunately fee schedule like GO, TTC, actually against logic of public transit. out side of these absolutely need public transit, there is little or no benefit purchase a pass , and their logic make users default to personal transportation. like now, the agency took that pass away when it actually make sense for the benefit public.
      upvote for OP still.

    • This sucks. Zero warning. Just disappears like it never existed.
      I haven’t either, from the article with the bar chart, it looks like they just go home as soon as their target is reached.
      Yeah that sucks, fantastic value. Was there just this weekend as it was one of the purchase options when I purchased the day pass.
      That really sucks. I really appreciated the weekend pass and was looking forward to using it again for trips to Wonderland this summer.

    • No, you can only use it for trips scheduled for Saturday morning (so after 4am).

    • Hi guys, I just started working at downtown and using the presto, I will be working the weekends, do I just buy the weekend pass to save money? Or presto will max out at 15$ at weekend?
      Weekend pass is way cheaper than Presto for multiple GO transit trips

      Presto won't max out at $15
      If your work requires you to commute back and forth on the weekends - either for Saturday or Sunday (yes, there are some people who need to be working downtown for certain functions), then the one-day weekend pass will be enough.

      For both Saturday and Sunday, the two-day weekend pass at $15CDN will be ideal.

      Look for one day pass for either Oct 8 or Oct 9. Is this still available?

    • there are stipulations in the terms that allows them to give you a ticket even if you run out of power on the phone or the phone malfunctions. Yes they can write you a ticket. You can appeal it later, probably get a lesser fine.

    • Nah, there has always been a 5 minute delay for activation to prevent this.
      I see. Probably if someone was bold enough they could sit in the middle of a relatively populated train car, and "having a hard time finding" their phone, and then screening it up, five minutes is doable. Not ethical. They'd of course know, but not sure they would write a ticket. And like I said, with 7 days only, it's not that useful anyways.

    • Not sure if this was discussed (not gonna read 30+ pages), but I bet they changed the validity from one year to seven days because if you bought a pass, you could get on the train, and only actually activate it when you saw they were checking tickets.

    • Don't be me.... A couple weeks ago I bought a day pass for $10 and it was early morning and for some reason thought you could scan the bar code on the GO bus reader. Didn't think much of it and realized later that I tapped my CC and ended up paying $11 for a bus ride. So for others please don't scan, tap or even get your phone near one of those readers... You just need to activate the pass and show it to the driver if your riding the bus/train etc.
      The newer Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) also have a barcode reader though (to my understanding) it's not ready to accept QR Code/Barcode based tickets (including those on the $10 one-day weekend or $15CDN full-weekend passes).

      I actually bought a one-day weekend pass last weekend (Saturday, September 30) - when I took the GO Train to Union station (from Ajax) to attend an E-Sports show down at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (and yes, I have to pay TTC fare) - however, I used my PRESTO Card (for redundancy reasons).

      When I went back last Sunday, October 1st, I still used my PRESTO Card.

    • SneakerCon in Toronto is another event to check out on September 23 to 24:
      https://sneakercon.com/event/sneaker-co ... 3-24-2023/

      This would be one of the ways to commute to/from using the GO Transit unlimited 1-day weekend or full-weekend passes.

      Aside from that event, there's also one event (though it's within the vicinity of GO Transit's coverage area) to commute to/from - a festival in Oshawa called the "Convergence Festival":

      I took a quick look and I'm not seeing a direct train from Ajax GO to Union on Sept 30th for some reason. Sept 23rd is showing the same thing. And yet, the Sundays on those weekends show direct service. I don't see any updates regarding those two Saturdays that explains why there's no Lakeshore East train service available. Maybe it's just a mistake or maybe it's because it's still a couple of weeks away. But I'd keep an eye out there.
      Currently, there are no closures planned during the weekend of September 30 and October 1 for the Lakeshore East line - but then again, it's definitely subject to change.

    • Thanks for the response. I would have considered booking a hotel (or an Airbnb/VRBO) in Downtown Toronto but judging by the commuting distance (and owning to the fact that the venue is within public transit distance - I have to treat commuting from Ajax to Toronto and back as if I were to commute to/from work downtown) plus the fact that the hotels are expensive during an event like that, booking a night in the city is "irrelevant" to my situation (or something like that).

    • For September 28-29, they can buy the weekday group passes each day they attend, assuming the distance they travel is more than what the pass costs to make it worth buying.

      https://tickets.gotransit.com/en-us/?type=promo

      September 30th is a Saturday and October 1st is a Sunday.

      So anyone who will be going both days should be buying the $15 weekend pass since it's valid for unlimited rides for the entire weekend. Any rides taken on the TTC will be extra.

    • I usually activate my pass at home (I live within 5 to 10 minutes from a GO Station) well before I arrive at the GO Station.

      Aside from that, I'm hoping that someone can answer my quesiton located at #734 (https://forums.redflagdeals.com/go-tran ... #p38021940) - which pass will my friends need if they will be taking the GO Train (or GO bus) to connect to Union Station (and take the TTC or even an Uber/Lyft) to the venue at College/Yonge for the OWL (Overwatch League) Grand Finals later this month? By the way, some will attend all of the days while others (including myself) will attend the September 30 and October 1, 2023 portions.

      Please advise.

    • Are you allow to board at another station different from the one I pick at purchase....had a change of plan last minute.
      To my understanding, you can. If I remembered correctly, I've bought a one-day weekend pass configured for Ajax to Union (and back) last month (but at that time, I had to see my mom in Pickering to fix her "Prime Video Login Issue" at her house (she wanted to use my Prime Video credentials on her Rogers Ignite TV box). After that was done, she drove me to the Pickering GO Station where I boarded my train - without any issue.

      Sat Sept 2- Monday Sept 4
      I jumped on this, and enjoyed 60k + 80k + 80k of cycling.
      I had never take the Kitchener line to the end (final stop is Mount Pleasant on weekends).
      Loved it.
      5 minutes of riding from station and you have corn fields.
      Perfect for me, as I am close to Weston STN, and I absolutely hate how long it takes to leave city when travelling north west by bike.
      The other bonus - very short train ride, unlike my trips to Niagara and Barrie.

    • Trying to decide what to do this weekend to make use of the weekend pass.... Was thinking about going to Wonderland all 3 days but Go has stopped their transit there. I can still go but have to factor in extra costs for the TTC. Could also go to Niagara but I went there for the Civic holiday. Trying to figure out if there is another easily accessible hiking location from Hamilton using Go. Decisions decisions. But I am happy that it's a 3 day pass this weekend,
