QUESTION: This term I'll be in Toronto on co-op, but I'll be going back to Waterloo on weekends. I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible for me to get cheaper Greyhound tickets, since I'll be making so many trips?

  1. I think you can get $15 tickets at the turnkey desk. Is been a few years since I've gone to get one though so it might have changed.

  2. You can purchase a Via Rail 6 pack. Basically you 6 tickets at one time. I think it turns out to be the same price as Greyhound, but you get a nicer ride.

  3. Buy the 10 pack for students! Around $129 with taxes.

    1. Agreed. Take the Go train and buy a Presto and register it as a student. It's only about $13 a ride and then you can use it on the Subway too.

    2. You can only use it at certain subway stations though -- usually ones that have transfers to GO, as well as stations like Dundas.

  5. Fedbus also works, its pretty cheap too.

    1. I liked the Fedbus when it dropped off at Islington station not Yorkdale. No longer worth the 3 dollar savings from the GO bus. However I can see how Yorkdale is a more central location

  6. If you buy greyhound tickets online in advance, they end up being cheaper than getting them at turnkey (or the station)
