Danforth GO Station is a GO Transit train station in Toronto, Ontario. It is located on the east side of Main Street, south of Danforth Avenue at the boundary of Danforth Village and the Upper Beaches.
There are two station platforms: one on the north side of the tracks, serving the northernmost track, and one located between the middle and southern tracks. An underground walkway connects the station building on the north platform to the centre platform and the exit on the south side of the tracks. A ticket agent is available in the station building seven days a week, until 9PM weekdays and 10PM weekends/holidays.
A railway station has been located at the site of Danforth GO Station since 1883. At the time GO Transit began operations in 1967, the station was used by Canadian National. In 1974, the original station building was demolished and replaced by a new one.
Until the mid-1990s, Stouffville trains stopped at both Danforth and Scarborough GO Stations, until the passenger loads started to overwhelm the Stouffville trains. However in 2015, some Stouffville trains now make the stop at Danforth again.
From 2005 to 2008, GO Transit completed Lakeshore East corridor improvements that included a third track between Danforth and Scarborough. The station building and the platforms were renovated. The elevated walkway that connected the platforms was replaced by a fully-accessible tunnel. Improved waiting areas with overhead cover was added to the platforms. Platforms were also extended further west to accommodate 12-car trains.
Local transit connections are made on Main Street.
