Kipling GO Station is a GO Transit railway station along the Milton line rail corridor in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 27 St. Albans Road in the historic Islington neighbourhood of Toronto (formerly Etobicoke), near Dundas Street. It is connected to the TTC's Kipling station on the Bloor-Danforth subway line which is right underneath it.

A pair of tracks serve the station, with a single island platform between them, but GO trains generally use the south tracks. This station is on a Canadian Pacific Railway rail corridor.

This station is very basic, with no parking facilities of its own (the nearby car park is for the TTC services), but it does have a station building containing the ticket sales agent, which is linked with the TTC pedestrian tunnel by stairs. It is one of three GO stations connected directly to a TTC subway station (others being Kennedy and Union).

This is one of the few stations in which GO Transit do not plan to install a Ticket Vending Machine (TVM).

According to the 2005 'Easier Access on the TTC' Brochure, Kipling is now wheelchair-accessible, and GO Transit has installed an elevator. It has a platform long enough for a full-length GO train of ten Bombardier BiLevel carriages and a locomotive, and for future capacity expansion on the Milton line, Kipling is one of several stations that are to have their platforms extended to accommodate twelve carriages and at least one locomotive.
