Bikes are permitted on Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area GO Trains anytime on weekends and holidays, and on weekdays except during rush hour.
Often, the quickest way to get somewhere in the city requires using more than one form of transportation. If your trip is longer, combining bicycling with other forms of transit is a great option. Here are a few things you can do to make your multi-modal commute a hassle-free experience.
Research Transit Regulations in Your Area
Check out your regional transit website. Not only can you look up bus, train and subway schedules, but you can find cycle specific transit information for your city. For instance, some cities permit bikes to travel on trains at any time, while some prohibit bikes from boarding during peak hours. To find out what regulations you need to be aware of, consult your city’s transit website.
Get a Map
A transit specific map, preferably one that incorporates bike routes as well as transit stations, will take the headache out of trip planning on-the-go. You can usually find maps at transit kiosks, or view the digital version on your regional transit website from your smart phone. Making route choices while you navigate from home, work or school to a transit station and continue on by bike to your end destination is simplified when you have a reliable map in front of you
