The cost of riding GO Transit is expected to go up in the new year, but the price of the Union-Pearson Express may be coming down.

The Metrolinx board meets Thursday and according to a board report, it will likely approve an increase of about 5 per cent on all but the shortest GO rides effective February 1.

The provincial transit agency is also tweaking the cost of riding the Union-Pearson Express train over the next few weeks.

The changes include allowing children 12-and-under to ride free and reducing the return adult fare from $53 to $44.

It’s been nearly six months since it launched and the Union-Pearson Express is only carrying about 2,500 passengers a day, which is about half its first year goal.

Last week, it announced a buy one get one free promotion.
