The app is available in both English and French. Passengers can download the app for free at gotransit.com/public/en/schedules/goapps.

“We're very excited to offer our passengers the ability to access GO schedule information right in the palm of their hands,” said GO Transit Vice President of Customer Service Mary Proc. “This app will make it even easier for customers to ride the GO and is another step in improving customer service for our riders.”
