Cooksville GO Station is a GO Transit train station on the Milton line in the community of Cooksville in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 3210 Hurontario Street, near Dundas and Hurontario Streets.

Like most GO stations, Cooksville has parking for commuters and a station building with a ticket sales agent and a waiting room. It is located near several condominium complexes, which provides ridership on the Milton Line. The 1400-space parking lot allows access to those who live closer to Mississauga City Centre to use the station.

The GO Station is served by seven trains inbound to Union Station in the morning rush hour and seven trains outbound to Milton during the evening rush hour. There is also the Train-Bus during off-peak hours, and a bus service to the University of Guelph via Square One Bus Terminal and Aberfoyle Park & Ride.[1]

Despite growing ridership on the Milton line, GO cannot schedule additional trains because of the busy Canadian Pacific Railway freight services running on the same tracks.[2] Trains were extended from ten to twelve carriages in a phased roll-out between April 8, 2008[3] and May 2, 2008 in order to increase capacity, and congestion is alleviated somewhat by the extensive train-bus services outside of rush periods.

On October 13, 2008 the Canadian Pacific Spirit Train stopped at Cooksville GO station to promote the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.[4]
