Aurora GO Station is a GO Transit train station located in Aurora, ON. It is located south of Wellington St. and east of Industrial Pkwy.
The station platform is on the east side of the tracks, extending south from Wellington St. The station building is on the north end of the platform, close to Wellington St. A parking lot surrounds the station building, extending south partway down the platform, with entrances from Ross St. and Industrial Pkwy. The west lot is on the west side of the tracks, and extends the entire length of the station south from Wellington. Another lot on the east side is accessible from Industrial Pkwy., and the parking garage is east of Ross St. Tickets are sold in the station building during AM rush hours, while a Ticket Vending Machine is available at all times.
The station itself was originally built in 1900 by the Grand Trunk Railway, and kept in its original state through renovations by GO Transit after they assumed full control over the station.
Increasing demand through the development of Aurora put strain on the station, with the west parking lot built in 2008, demand for parking was still high. While a relief station in south-west Aurora was considered, it has never been built. Work started on a parking garage in Summer 2009 northeast of the station, which was completed in early 2010. It is the first GO Station in York Region to have a parking garage built.
A portion of the parking spaces located adjacent to the GO Train platform were converted to an off-street bus loop, and opened in fall 2012.
