GO transit needs to offer passes or reduced rates to people commuting into Toronto

Commuting into Toronto for work via GO transit is way too expensive. Metrolinx promotes being the "better way to travel" but it charges $11.60 per trip from Hamilton to Union Station. Even with its lousy loyalty program, where if more than 40 trips are taken per month the remaining trips are free, a regular commuter would pay more than $400 per month.
And it's not just Hamilton. Commuting from Oakville GO to Union is $7.91 per trip (almost $300 per month). Mississauga to Union via GO Bus is $8.44 per trip ($300 per month).
These costs are astronomical. Metrolinx has been around long enough to be offering people commuting from outside the city a pass that maxs out at the same cost as a TTC Metro pass. Even with the upcoming reduction of rates for people travelling within Toronto is not enough. Every other transit search offers monthly passes. Why doesn't Metrolinx?
