The station platform is on the north side of the tracks, extending west from Hurontario. The station building on the south side, with the main parking lot covering a large area from Hurontario westwards. The main Passenger Pickup/Dropoff is immediately south of the station building, while the bus platform is on the south side of the lot, west of the centre access road. A secondary lot is south of the platform, extending to Hillcrest. The station platform can be accessed from stairs at the east end down to Hurontario, as well as two walkways under the tracks (one in the middle to the station building, and the other on the west end of the platform to the north side of the main parking lot), where a second smaller Passenger Pickup/Dropoff is located. Access to the parking lot is through two roadways, at the extreme west end of the main lot, and the middle of the main lot (connecting to the secondary lot).

Cooksville GO Station opened on October 27, 1981 along with the rest of the Milton line. Located in a well developed neighbourhood as well as being the closest GO train station to Square One and Mississauga's City Centre, Cooksville has become one of the busiest stations on the GO network. Numerous parking expansions over the years has maximized its surrounding real estate, and plans are now in place to construct a parking garage to further expand parking capacity. The platform has also been expanded to accomodate 12-car trains, due to crowding conditions on the Milton line as well as the inability to add more trains onto CP's main freight line.
Most buses stop on the south side of the main parking lot, although some serve the station from the street.
