Meadowvale GO Station is a GO Transit railway station on the Milton line in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 6845 Millcreek Drive near Derry Road West and Winston Churchill Blvd., in the City of Mississauga in the community of Meadowvale.

As with most GO stations, Meadowvale offers parking for commuters, and ticket sales with an attendant during the morning rush hour. In addition to the trains, Meadowvale is served by train-buses outside the rush hours and in the reverse commute direction, by the Milton-Yorkdale-York Mills (TTC) GO Bus route, by the Highway 407 Express buses to York University's Keele Campus, and by Mississauga Transit buses.

Although ridership on the Milton line has grown beyond GO's expectations. The tracks are already busy with Canadian Pacific Railway freight traffic, although it is possible to increase the amount of trains, Canadian Pacific Railway will not allow it unless a third GO Transit dedicated right of way track is built, which costs a lot of money. In order to increase capacity, GO Transit has extended the rail platform to accommodate trains with twelve carriages rather than the current ten. As a temporary solution, extensive train-bus services help alleviate congestion.
