In May 2005 construction of a new and more modern station building was completed, replacing the previous station building at Langstaff Road and using the north end of the same train platform. The south building was converted to a waiting room after the new station building opened for service on June 6, 2005. The new building has a ticket office for passengers to purchase bus and train tickets on weekday mornings.
Langstaff Road East was the original routing of Highway 7 between Yonge Street and Bayview Avenue. When the former Highway 7 was upgraded, an overpass was constructed over the Canadian National Railway tracks, and the area north of Langstaff road became a large commuter parking lot. With the construction of Highway 407, the south lot was reduced in size, but newer developments north of the former Highway 7 led to the building of the new terminal. The south parking lot has a kiss and ride loop.

York Region Transit's Viva bus rapid transit serves the Richmond Hill Centre Terminal immediately west of Langstaff station, but is separated by the train tracks. A pedestrian bridge was opened in March 2008 to connect Richmond Hill Centre Terminal and the GO train station. In 2011, GO Transit has moved all Highway 407 - York University bus services from Langstaff GO Station to Richmond Hill Centre Terminal. GO Transit also operates Airport Express GO Bus service from Richmond Hill Centre Terminal to Toronto Pearson International Airport.
