Rutherford GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Barrie line train service. This station was opened on January, 2001 to accommodate the growing ridership on the Barrie line along with the growing communities surrounding Rutherford GO Station. Another reason for the station's presence was due to Maple GO Station's parking congestion prior to Rutherford's opening.

Maple GO station is close by, but it's extremely overparked. With Rutherford, we can take the pressure off Maple station, and we can accommodate more people who don't want to drive downtown.
