If you’re planning a big evening out on New Year’s Eve, GO Transit wants to make sure you get home safely to Burlington, Milton, Oakville and Halton Hills.

Metrolinx, the company that runs GO service, is teaming up with Forty Creek Whisky to offer free, all-night New Year’s Eve service for customers.

Both train and bus services will be free to all customers on New Year’s Eve from 7 p.m. until 8 a.m. on Jan. 1.

In addition, GO Transit will run extra late evening trips into Union Station to help customers travelling downtown as well as a variety of special trains from Union Station after midnight to help them get home safely.

On the Lakeshore West GO Line, trains will depart regularly from Union Station from 12:30 a.m. until 7:30 a.m.

On the Kitchener Line, which stops in Georgetown and Acton, trains will depart Union Station regularly from 12:35 a.m. until 5:35 a.m.

The Milton Line will have two additional trips heading westbound to Milton GO at 1:25 a.m. and 3:55 a.m.

Extra GO Bus service is also planned for New Year’s Eve, giving customers even more options to travel safely into 2024.

Customers are encouraged to continue tapping on and off their train or bus, but they will not be charged and will see $0 on the display.

Make sure you check the Go schedule here before you make your plans.
