I guess that GO auto show ticket can just require you to write down the date that you are going. Similar to how TTC day passes work.
Not sure, maybe someone can comment if they've bought tit.

For $33 with all day roundtrip GO usage, it's the same price as taking a roundtrip price to/from Kitchener (and then there's Auto show admission too).

That's in fact cheaper than taking the Go train from Kitchener ($35.40). The Go ticket would be useful because then I wouldn't have to pay for expensive parking - especially finding a space with a charger for my Leaf.

Tickets include roundtrip on GO Transit - show Autoshow ticket to fare inspector
$33 Adult
$76 Family pass (2 adult, 2 children 7-12 years)

I think the GO Transit tickets will end up being abused for unlimited GO transit rides while the Auto Show is running.... how does GO know which day you're going to the auto show?

Also free for bloggers/media (thanks sprung!).
Hi OP, perhaps you could update your post to include the Perkopolis pricing, being $18 taxes included. However, they are not e-tickets so will either have to be mailed or picked-up.

Also for anyone wondering, show dates/times:

February 16: 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm
February 17-24: 10:30 am to 10:00 pm
February 25: 10:30 am to 6:00 pm

Not going anymore. It is outrageously overpriced and the worst thing of all, it is overcrowded like herds of sheep. And you cannot even go inside the more expensive cars they are all locked.

I'll be working all 10 days at the Plug & Drive EV ride & drive alternating between the MTCC south & north buildings. Basically the public will be allowed to register and take free test drives of the 13 EV's we'll have there to experience them. No sales people, mostly EV owners staffing the booths. No Tesla's.......but lots of very affordable EV's to drive like the 2018 Leaf, Bolt, Volt, Pacifica Hybrid, Outlander PHEV, Fusion Energi, etc. Lineups will likely be VERY LONG to test drive the '18 Leaf & Outlander PHEV being that they're brand new vehicles on the market.
Do you know if they'll have the Honda Clarity there?
Was at the plug N drive location at Dufferin and Finch and they don't have any mid-size sedans to test drive.

They have a Clarity at the EV Discovery Centre and it will most likely be at the CIAS for test drives (but I don't personally have that information). The '18 Leaf is a mid-sized hatch, so that will definitely be there.......but like I said, REALLY long lineups expected for test driving the Leaf.

Just show up with a CIAS ticket (we can't give rides to people without tickets) and sign up with the tablets we'll have there at either of the Plug 'n Drive booths (one south building, one north building). We'll be set up inside the doors of the building, but outside of the actual CIAS ticket entrance. I haven't even driven some of these vehicles yet, REALLY looking forward to it.

No, the first day for Plug 'n Drive is Friday from 12PM-5PM - I will be there on the north side (Rob). Every other day will be 10AM-5PM. Apparently 13 vehicles for test drives (11 different vehicles and doubles of Chevy Volt & Bolt).

Oh, so just to confirm, you'll have nothing for Media Day? I wonder what the media is supposed to look at in terms of the EV selection...hmmm

No ride & drives from our group on media day.........but there will be static EV displays there. Apparently Audi is also running a ride & drive (not sure which vehicles though).
