Lakeshore West

Bronte GO Station is a railway station and bus station in the GO Transit network located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Lakeshore West line train service.

In September 2008 the station parking lot was expanded[1] with a new entrance on Wyecroft Road. In January 2011, approximately 175 spaces were made available in the south lot which can be entered from Speers Road. When the project is completed the south lot will provide 300 parking spaces, with stairs and ramps to the platforms.[2][3]

History[edit]

The GO Station was originally called Oakville West to distinguish it from the former Bronte Grand Trunk Railway station that had been located about 1.5 kilometres farther west[4] at Bronte Road. It was subsequently renamed to the distinctive historic name.
