Eglinton GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network[1] located in Scarborough, a district of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Lakeshore East line train service.

The station is located directly south of Eglinton Avenue East, right at the end of Bellamy Road North. Both the Colonial Park and the Bellamy Park are located south and east of the station respectively.

Construction began at the station in January 2015, to build new pedestrian tunnels and elevators, alongside an accessible platform, which is expected to be completed in late 2016.[2] This is to coincide with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act that requires all public areas to be accessible by 2025.[3]

Eglinton GO Station is not related to the Toronto Transit Commission's Eglinton subway station, which is 14 km (9 mi) to the west along Eglinton Avenue.

Connecting transit[edit]

Toronto Transit Commission buses can be boarded on Eglinton Avenue East at the intersection with Bellamy Road North.
