Metrolinx announced that GO Transit, both train and bus service will be free to all customers on New Year’s Eve starting at 7 PM and fares will not start to be charged until 8 AM on January 1st, 2024.

  • On the Lakeshore East and West GO Lines, trains will depart regularly from Union Station from 12:30 AM until 7:30 AM
  • On the Kitchener Line, trains will depart Union Station regularly from 12:35 AM until 5:35 AM
  • The Milton Line will have two additional trips heading westbound to Milton GO at 1:25 AM and 3:55 AM

According to Metrolinx, extra buses will be added for the evening which you can keep up to date on here.

UP Express service is also free after 7 PM on December 31st with the last UP Express train departing Union at 11 PM and 11:27 PM at Pearson.

Metrolinx encourages anyone who is planning on travelling on New Year’s Eve to keep up to date with possible transit scheduling changes on their website.
