How to pay for Mississauga GO Transit
GO Transit doesn’t just service the Mississauga area; they cover a lot of ground. That means figuring out how and what to pay can sometimes be a challenge. Here’s what you need to know:
How to buy fares/passes?
GO Transit fares and passes can be purchased with cash, credit or debit at ticket vending machines or the customer service window. Most Missisuaga-serving transit agencies, including GO Transit, encourage customers to opt for touchless payment via PRESTO cards.
Where to buy fares/passes?
You can purchase tickets, group, and day passes at the ticket counter or vending machine before you ride. PRESTO cards can be purchased online or at select vending locations. If you want to reload your card, you can do so online, at a customer service outlet or other authorized location, or self-serve reload machines.
GO Transit Fares Zones
GO Transit covers a lot of ground, which means it services several fare zones in the greater Toronto area. You can access GO Transit in Mississauga (obviously), Toronto, York, Durham, Brampton, Oakville, Caledon, Milton, Halton Hills, Burlington, and Hamilton.
What is POP?
POP means proof of payment—you need to be able to prove that you’ve paid to ride GO Transit with a ticket, transfer or your PRESTO card. Even if there’s no one checking at the door, you still need to have it available because you can be asked for it at any time.
You can use a single GO Transit fare for up to three hours to complete your trip. If you are using a PRESTO card, transfer credits will be applied automatically, so while you have to tap every time you board, you’re only charged once.
You can also use your PRESTO card to transfer between GO Transit and other participating providers, but you will have to pay an additional fare when you switch. GO Transit has partnered with MiWay for a special discount fare of $0.80 when you switch from MiWay to go.
Beyond regular fares, GO Transit offers riders the option to purchase day and group passes.
