Commuter trains to Toronto are on track to launch by early December.
A one-way trip from Guelph to Union Station would cost $11.70.
A one-way trip from Kitchener would take two hours and cost $14.60, the same as the current bus fare.
Go Transit released details of its planned rail service Tuesday at a Kitchener event attended by politicians and dignitaries.
The provincial transit service plans two trains departing each morning, Monday to Friday. Two trains will return in the afternoon and evening. There's no weekend service.
A schedule may be released within two months, said Greg Percy, vice-president of operations for GO Transit. Passengers will use the Via Rail station on Victoria Street North. Some parking will be made available nearby at King and Victoria streets, on vacant public land targeted to become a transit hub for trains and intercity buses.
A round-trip from Kitchener to Toronto would cost $29.20. From Guelph it would cost $23.40. Fares are reduced with discount tickets. A monthly pass from Kitchener costs $482 and from Guelph costs $386.
Construction is underway on a $5-million layover facility where trains will park overnight in central Kitchener, between King and Park streets.
