To celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Lights, GO Transit is running an exciting experiential campaign that will get customers in the festive spirit like never before. Introducing the first-ever ‘GO Diwali Train’!
From November 10 to 15, customers can join in on the festivities aboard the GO Diwali Train along the Kitchener line in a Diwali themed coach adorned with vibrant Diwali colours inside and out. Customers will be welcomed by a warm, inviting atmosphere, with lively Bollywood dancers, the melodious sounds of traditional music, and exciting celebratory giveaways to keep the festive energy flowing. Can’t make it for the festivities during those dates? Customers can still catch a glimpse of the beautifully decorated GO Diwali Train until November 26 across the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH).
Diwali is a festival of light that signifies the triumph of good over evil. It’s a magical time of the year that brings families and friends together, and travelling to connect with loved ones plays a key role in this celebration. To help make the trip even more special, customers can take advantage of GO Transit’s affordable options, including the $10 GO Weekend Pass, Weekday Group Passes starting at just $30, and of course, kids 12 and under ride GO for free.
This Diwali, let GO Transit be a trusted companion on a heartwarming and incredibly fun journey. Experience the joy, the lights, and the spirit of sharing on the GO Diwali Train. Don’t miss out on this dazzling celebration!
As part of its ongoing efforts to foster stronger customer engagement and celebrate the diverse communities that use its services, GO Transit observes several days of significance throughout the year. One of these occasions is Diwali, a 5-day ‘festival of light’ that marks South Asia’s biggest celebration of the calendar year. Here in Canada, especially in Ontario, the South Asian community accounts for nearly 20% of the regional population in the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario under the Metrolinx Act, 2006, was created to improve the coordination and integration of all modes of transportation in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
