There's another easy way to get to Cottage Country this summer

Jul 3 2019, 4:29 pm

You can say goodbye to spending hours in your car waiting in bumper to bumper traffic on Highway 400 during busy cottage weekends.

For the second summer in a row, Ontario Northland has partnered with GO Transit to make it easier to get to cottage country with its GO ON Muskoka Service.

Every Friday, from now through August 30, the Ontario Northland bus will connect with the Barrie GO Train (travelling from Union Station) at Allandale Waterfront GO Station.

The bus will then continue through Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Huntsville, and North Bay.

Service returns to the city on Sundays through September 1 in the Muskoka region, starting in North Bay, with stops in Huntsville, Bracebridge, and Gravenhurst, before meeting the 4:20 pm Toronto-bound GO Train at Allandale Waterfront GO Station.

Your ticket will provide you with transportation on both the GO Train and the Ontario Northland bus.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at each Ontario Northland bus stop. Tickets start as low as $38.96 to Gravenhurst, $42.39 to Bracebridge, $52.15 to Huntsville, and $82.99 to North Bay.

Kids 12 and under can travel for free.

Instead of tapping a PRESTO card on the GO train, you can simply show your ticket when requested.
