Etobicoke North GO Station is a GO Transit train and bus station on the Kitchener line in Toronto, Canada. It is located at 1949 Kipling Avenue just north of Belfield Road, close to the junction of Highways 401 and 409.

Etobicoke North has a station building in which passengers can wait for trains and buy tickets, and a Ticket Vending Machine for purchasing tickets quickly and easily. The station is wheelchair-accessible, and has a GO parking lot slightly to the west. It is provides an interchange between trains reaching to downtown Toronto and peak-hour GO buses for York Region, Woodbridge, Kleinburg, Nobleton, and Bolton. There is a regular stop for GO buses travelling to and from Brampton past Humber College.

Construction started in November 2013 to improve the station as part of the Georgetown South Project. This work is expected to be completed in 2015,[1] but the station will not be a stop on the Union Pearson Express when it begins operation. A new 12-car accessible platform with heated shelters will be built on the north side. The north parking lot will be expanded to accommodate a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area and a bus loop. The existing station building will be upgraded.[2]

Connecting transit[edit]

Local transit service is by Toronto Transit Commission route 45 Kipling. The station is connected by a staircase from Kipling Avenue, which crosses below the tracks. The closest TTC bus stops are a short distance south at Belfield Road.
