Average price of homes within walking distance of every GO Transit station (MAP)

Apr 2 2019, 12:40 pm

With soaring real estate prices within the City of Toronto, many are looking just outside of the city to buy property. And for commuters, being close to a GO Transit station ranges from added bonus to downright necessary.

Real estate website Zoocasa collected the average 2018 sold prices for homes within a 2 km radius of each of the 66 GO Train stations across the GTHA. They then averaged out commute times sourced from GO Transit and scored them based on arrival times at Union Station at approximately 8:30 am on weekdays.

The data was used to map out the most affordable, and least affordable, homes along the GO Transit line.

The study found that, to score the greatest value, home buyers had better be prepared for a long ride.
