Go transit primarily serves the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) conurbation, with operations extending to several communities beyond the GTHA proper in the Greater Golden Horseshoe as its shown in go transit map. GO transit carries over 61 million passengers a year using an extensive network consisting of diesel train and coach bus service, enhanced by convenient connections with other regional transit providers such as the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Via Rail.
Canada first such public system, GO Transit began regular passenger service on May 23, 1967, under the auspices of the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario. Since then, go transit has grown from a mere two train lines to seven, and numerous buses and bus routes as its mentioned in go transit map. Go transit continues to expand its service, infrastructure and ridership with much success. It has also been constituted in a variety of public-sector configurations, today existing as an operating division of the provincial crown agency Metrolinx, a body with overall responsibility for integrative transportation planning within the GTHA.
Fares on the GO Transit network are based on the distance travelled between two specified points, and the type of passenger using the ticket. Passenger categories exist for adults, students, seniors, children, and groups. Tickets of go transit are also sold for single, two and ten-ride trips, or passes for one day or one month. Tickets can be used on a GO train, bus, or a combination of both (see go transit map). They can be purchased at train stations, bus terminals, ticket agencies, or on GO buses
GO Transit hires Transit Safety Officers, who are designated Special Constables that patrol transit property. They are responsible for ensuring passenger safety and protection, enforcing relevant laws or by-laws, offering customer assistance, conducting fare inspections, and supporting local police, fire and ambulance, while also promoting railway safety (see go transit map). Under the Police Services Act, Transit Safety Officers of go transit are appointed by the Commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police, with approval from the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
