Those travelling between Kennedy and Union Station will have a reduced fare starting this weekend.
Metrolinx says it’s launching the 18-month pilot project this Saturday, November 23, and it will reduce the cost of the trip from $4.75 down to $3.70, which is the lowest fare available when customers use their PRESTO card.
Fares for trips between Kennedy GO and Exhibition will also be lowered as part of the pilot.

Metrolinx says the fare initiative is intended to ease congestion on the TTC at the Bloor-Yonge transfer during peak periods as commuters head into downtown Toronto.
“We’re a connected region and we understand that helping our customers make easier and timely transit connections can make all the difference in their experience,” said Mark Childs, chief marketing officer for Metrolinx.
“This trial recognizes how our systems can work together.”
