Newmarket GO Station is a train station in the GO Transit network located in the Old Davis Tannery Centre on the north side of Davis Drive East in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, and is a stop on the Barrie line train service. It is a little over two kilometres east of the Newmarket Bus Terminal, at Davis Drive West and Eagle Street, which is a terminus for GO Bus, York Region Transit and Viva BRT services.
In 1853 the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Railway opened the line between Toronto and Collingwood which was acquired by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1888 and subsequently merged into the Canadian National Railway. The Newmarket railway station was built on the south side of Davis Drive by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1900. The standard style one-storey wood clad stick frame building with a hip roof and projecting eaves, has been designated under the Town of Newmarket, By-law number 1987-110 for its architectural and historical significance.
The GO Transit Barrie line is now owned by Metrolinx and the historic GTR station is owned by the Town of Newmarket.
The Barrie line has a weekday service consisting of five trains southbound from Allandale Waterfront GO Station in Barrie to Union Station in Toronto, and five trains northbound from Union Station in the afternoon.
Weekend service is also provided all day in both directions during summer months. Between June 29, 2013 and September 2, 2013, the service consists of four trains in each direction between Allandale Waterfront Station and Union Station.
The ticket office at Newmarket GO Station sells tickets exclusively on weekdays between 6:05 am and 7:50 am. This is the specific time period when the southbound Barrie - Bradford GO Trains reach Newmarket. The exception to this is on the last two work days of each month, when the station sells tickets between the hours of 17:50 and 19:15 to accommodate riders purchasing monthly passes for the following month. At other times of the day, the only other location to purchase GO bus or train tickets is at the GO Agency in the Newmarket Bus Terminal, which has extended hours.
All buses serve the GO station from bus stops on Davis Drive amd Main Street.
