The station is served by a single Canadian National Railway track, which is shared with freight trains and Via Rail. Its platform is long enough to accommodate a full-length train of ten BiLevel carriages and one or two locomotives, and it has a small station building for ticket sales with a Ticket Vending Machine.
The station has a 110-space parking lot, which is owned by the City of Toronto but leased by GO Transit. There are pedestrian accesses to the station at John Street and at Lawrence Avenue West, and the station is wheelchair-accessible.
The GO station is located south of the old CPR Weston Station (and north of John Street) built in the 1880s. This station was demolished in the 1970s and now vacant land east of the CNR tracks and along the CPR line. A Tim Hortons on south side of Lawrence Avenue West pays homage to the old station with a replica "Weston" station sign on roof facing west.
Connecting TTC buses
There are no bus stops at the stations, connections require patrons to walk east or west along Lawrence Avenue West to nearest bus stops.

Weston GO Station will be a stop on the Union Pearson Express running from Union Station to Toronto Pearson International Airport. It is being designed and built by Metrolinx in time for the 2015 Pan American Games. The agency will also own and operate the line.
To support this, a new Weston station is being built on the south side of Lawrence Avenue West. A platform and parking lot will be built for use with parking for over 180 cars. It will be a full service station with access from both sides of Lawrence Avenue.
