Aurora GO Station is a railway station and bus station in the GO Transit network located on Wellington Street East between Yonge Street and Bayview Avenue in Aurora, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Barrie line train service, and connects with York Region Transit local bus routes, and the GO Express Bus between Newmarket Bus Terminal and Union Station Bus Terminal.

The rail presence in Aurora dates back to 1853, when the first steam train from Toronto passed Machell's Corners, and in 1855 this line was completed to Collingwood. In 1900, Grand Trunk Railway constructed the present building, which was designated a provincial heritage building in 1971, and was renovated in 1992 after GO Transit became the exclusive passenger carrier.

Services[edit]

The Barrie line has a weekday service consisting of five trains southbound from Allandale Waterfront GO Station in Barrie to Union Station in Toronto, and five trains northbound from Union Station in the afternoon.

There is also an hourly bus service to Toronto, with 19 southbound bus trips, and 19 return bus trips from Toronto.

Weekend service is provided all day in both directions during summer months. Between June 29, 2013 and September 2, 2013, the service consists of four trains in each direction between Allandale Waterfront Station and Union Station. [1]

On August 21, 2012, GO Transit opened a new bus loop to accommodate all GO and York Region Transit bus service at the station.[2]
