Commuters in Toronto who use both GO Transit and the city's public transportation network will be getting a discount on their fares.

A spokesman for Toronto Mayor John Tory says that when the co-fares come into effect, people who ride the Toronto Transit Commission and transfer to GO will receive $1.50 off of their GO fare when they use a Presto card.

If they transfer from GO to the TTC with their Presto card, the same discount will be taken from their TTC fare.

Don Peat says the change will likely come into effect by the end of this year or early next year.

He says the province has agreed to reimburse the Toronto Transit Commission for the cost of the reduced fares.

Anne Marie Aikin, a spokeswoman for Metrolinx, says GO already has co-fares with 12 transit agencies in the province.

The Toronto Transit Commission is investing in signalling upgrades that will hopefully see them able to run subway trains closer together.
