GO ON Muskoka Service

Heading north from the GTA on a weekend this summer?

 

We’ve partnered with GO Transit to make it easy to get to cottage country. Whether you’re meeting up with family or friends, we’ve got you covered. Every Friday from June 28 to August 30, our Ontario Northland bus will connect with the Barrie GO Train out of  Union Station at Allandale Waterfront GO Station. The bus will continue to Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Huntsville and North Bay.

 

Return service will be provided on Sundays from June 30 to September 1 in the Muskoka region starting in North Bay, picking up in Huntsville, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst before meeting the 4:20 p.m. Toronto-bound GO Train at Allandale Waterfront GO Station.

 

One ticket will provide you with transportation on both the GO train and the Ontario Northland bus. Tickets can be purchased in advance at ontarionorthland.ca or at each Ontario Northland bus stop. Instead of tapping a PRESTO card on the GO train, you can simply show your ticket when requested.
