Just a little bit of GO history

For the first years of operation, passengers would pay half a fare to board the GO train and rip off half their tickets. Passengers would pay the rest of their fare and deposit the other half of their tickets upon arrival at their destination. The above photo shows arriving commuters depositing their remaining fare and tickets when leaving Union Station. Thanks to:

I rode the GO trains in the early 80's. They used VIA coaches to get us downtown, but the ticket guys where in plexi-glass booths...and they sure didn't wear ties and hats

Hey, I remember when you had to do that. Can you just imagine having to do that today? The backlog would be ridiculous!!!
