Unionville GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network located in Markham, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Stouffville commuter railway line. This station is also served by Highway 407 East Express buses, which run westbound to York University, northbound to Mount Joy GO Station, and eastbound to the Oshawa Bus Terminal.
The station was built in 1991 to replace the old Unionville Station on Main Street Unionville. GO Trains stopped at the old station from 1982 to 1991. The newer station was renovated and re-opened in April 2005 and accessed by a service road from Kennedy Road north of Highway 407.
Unionville Station is also served by York Region's Viva bus rapid transit system. Bus service began on 16 October 2005, with buses stopping near Kennedy Road at the railway station. Unionville Station is the eastern terminus of peak services on the Viva Pink services to Richmond Hill Centre and Finch Station.
Because the nearby Enterprise Drive was not finished when Viva services in the area began, this station served as a temporary Vivastation for the Viva Purple line until 19 November 2005, with both Viva Purple and Viva Green buses having to go on a detour on Highway 407 nearby. Viva Pink services were added on 2 January 2006.
Although this is the eastern terminus station for the Viva Pink line, there are no multiRide ticket vending machines - only oneRide ticket vending machines.
