Burlington GO Station is a railway station and bus station in the GO Transit network, located at 2101 Fairview Street in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, just south of Queen Elizabeth Way between Guelph Line and Brant Street.

Overview[edit]

It is a stop on the Lakeshore West line train service, and serves as a weekday peak-hour western terminus of the rail services. Most non peak-hour trains now terminate service at Aldershot, and a few trains link Hamilton further to the west. Bus connections to/from Aldershot are still provided. There is a separate connecting GO Bus serving McMaster University.

There are extensive parking facilities on both the north and south of the station. A large multi-level parking structure opened in 2008, significantly expanding the parking capacity of the station. During weekdays, Burlington Transit serves both sides of the station, connected by wheelchair accessible tunnels under the busy Canadian National Railway freight tracks.
