Port Credit GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network located in the Port Credit neighbourhood of Mississauga, Ontario in Canada. It is a stop on the Lakeshore West line train service.

History[edit]

The GTR station in 1912

The Great Western Railway opened the first railway station in Port Credit in 1855 at Stavebank Road, just west of the current GO Transit facility. That station burned to the ground[1] and was replaced by Canadian National closer to the location of the current station, which opened in 1967 when GO Train service began on the Lakeshore West line.[2] The Great Western Railway was purchased in 1882 by the Grand Trunk Railway, which was absorbed into the Canadian National Railway in 1920.

Local bus service[edit]

The station is served by MiWay[3] (formerly Mississauga Transit) routes:
