This article is about the regional transit authority in the Greater Horseshoe Area of Ontario. For the bus system in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, see GO Transit (Wisconsin).

GO Transit, or the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority, is an integrated rail- and bus-based commuter system centred on downtown Toronto but increasingly servicing suburb-to-suburb commuters, notably in areas surrounding the Toronto area and the Greater Horseshoe. As of May 2009, GO Transit is a division of the Metrolinx organization.

Started in May 1967, what was meant to be a short 2-year test quickly became a permanent fixture in the Toronto area that carries around 55 million passengers a year. Bus service was added in late 1970 with GO-owned vehicles operated by private corporations providing service to areas without train service yet.

GO Transit uses a 575Vac (600Vac nominal) HEP system that is incompatible with all other HEP systems in North America.

Bus

  • All buses are equipped with a DataFare 2000 stamper and Presto validator/ticket machine.
  • Starting from 2007, GO introduced a new destination sign display on all its GO buses and each route has its own route number as well as a new way of displaying the route. Instead of the traditional way of showing the route and intermediate destinations, the new format has the final stop encompassing 3/4 of the sign at the top while intermediate stops taking up 1/4 of the sign on the bottom with the route number on the right taking up the whole screen (Eg. Oshawa GO/Hwy 2 94 -> Oshawa GO/York Mills 94 -> Oshawa GO/Scarborough Terminal 94 -> etc.). The side destination signs will only show the route number followed by the final stop and the major road it goes on (Eg. 94 Oshawa GO -> 94 Hwy 2). The first three routes to get it are 94, 95, and 96 because with the introduction of more Hwy 2 service and the new Hwy 2 Express, it is necessary to identify the different routes so customers don't get confused.
  • All buses are equipped with bike racks.

Garages

GO Transit utilizes a great number of garages to store and maintain their bus and train fleets. While some of the bus garages are owned fully by GO Transit, and some are garages rented out from other transit or trucking agencies.

GO owns one rail maintenance facility - Willowbrook Maintenance Centre, located in south-eastern Etobicoke. As well, they own two other yards that are used to store equipment during the middle of the day: Don Yard (located near the mouth of the Don River) and Bathurst North Yard (south of Front Street between Bathurst & Spadina), both of which were former freight yards.
