Long Branch GO Station is a stop on GO Transit's Lakeshore West line in the Long Branch neighbourhood of Toronto.

Being one of the original Go Stations built in 1967, it is now scheduled for modernization. The plans would make the station accessible with new elevators, connecting tunnels, washrooms and canopies over the platforms. It is expected to be 2016 before these upgrades are complete.[1] It is also anticipated that more condominium development in the area will increase the population density of the neighbourhood and attract more riders.[1]
