GO Transit/Metrolinx debuts GO Mobile app
Written by Luther S. Miller, Senior Consulting Editor
GO Transit says it has launched GO Mobile, the rail operator’s first official mobile application, in collaboration with Ryers on University. GO Transit says the app is now available on BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android devices.
The GO Mobile app allows users to view and bookmark GO schedules, check departure information at Toronto’s Union Station, and set arrival alerts. Text-to-speech functionality allows devices to read departure information aloud to users.
The app is available in both English and French. Passengers can download the app for free at
“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.”
