Rutherford GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Barrie line train service. This station was opened in January 2001 to accommodate the growing ridership on the Barrie line along with the growing communities surrounding Rutherford GO Station. Another reason for the station's presence was due to Maple GO Station's parking congestion prior to Rutherford's opening.
In May 2017, Metrolinx issued a request for qualification for the redevelopment of the station. The proposal requires infrastructure upgrades at the station, including the addition of a second rail track, new rail platforms with a full canopy, and grade separation of the rail intersection with Rutherford Road. A new station building will be constructed that will integrate a multi-level parking structure. After qualifying candidates are chosen, Infrastructure Ontario will issue a request for proposal from those candidates in late 2017.

Maple GO station is close by, but it's extremely overparked. With Rutherford, we can take the pressure off Maple station, and we can accommodate more people who don't want to drive downtown.
