TORONTO -- It'll cost more to use GO Transit beginning next February.

The Metrolinx board of directors has approved a GO Transit fare increase which will take effect on February 1st.

Metrolinx says the fare increase will help make improvements such as more parking and more train and bus trips to meet increasing demand.

As GO fares vary by distance travelled, the cost per single adult ride when using a paper ticket will increase between 35 cents and 55 cents.

Fares for children, students, seniors and groups will also increase.

The increase will be less for customers who use PRESTO as there will be changes to loyalty discounts.
