Terminus Milton

Milton GO Station is the western terminus of GO Transit's Milton line in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 780 Main Street East in the Town of Milton, near Main Street and Ontario Street.

Like many GO stations, Milton offers parking for commuters, a station building housing ticket sales and a waiting room, and a bus loop serving GO and Milton Transit buses. The station is located very close to Highway 401, and is placed to be accessible to residents of Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo who work in Toronto to park and ride. Its bus loop may be used by future connecting buses to Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo.

A new layover facility (overnight service and storage yard) was built in 2006 and opened at the beginning of 2007 with capacity to store eight 12 car trains. Currently, seven 12 car trains are operated, with an eighth train planned to ease congestion in June, 2012. This facility replaced one located 8 miles west at Guelph Junction in Campbellville which could not be expanded beyond its five 10 car tracks.
