How it worksMap showing the location of the Connect-to-GO validator at the Kitchener Train Station

  • Travelling to the Kitchener Train Station on GRT: tap your EasyGO fare card when you board a GRT bus or ION train. Tap again at the validator located at the Kitchener Train Station.
  • Travelling from the Kitchener Train Station on GRT: Tap your EasyGO fare card at the validator located at the Kitchener Train Station. Tap again when you board a GRT bus or ION train.

When you've tapped your card twice, you'll get a rebate for your GRT fare.
