Weston GO Station is a GO Transit train station located in Toronto, ON. It is located in the community of Weston, north of the intersection of Weston Rd. and Lawrence Ave.

The station platform is located on the north side of GO's track (the southern one). Passengers can only access the platform through a walkway at the south-east end of the platform to Lawrence Ave., or walk onto John St. at the opposite end. The station building and ticket agent are located at the Lawrence entrance. A ticket agent is available during AM rush hour only; otherwise a Ticket Vending Machine is available.

Uniquely, GO leases parking for Weston Station from the City of Toronto, with 110 spaces available in a small lot on John St. northwest of the rail corridor.

History

Canadian Pacific had a station north of John St. serving the community of Weston in the 1800s, but has since been demolished. GO began serving the Weston community with the opening of the Georgetown line in April 1974. The Pearson Air-Rail Link will serve Weston upon the beginning of operation in 2015.

Historically the community of Weston has been known for vocal opposition to rail projects in the area, most recently the Air-Rail Link. Originally intended to bypass Weston, the community lobbied for a stop on the Air-Rail Link, and also demanded a grade separation project through the community as a result of the increased train traffic that the Air-Rail Link will bring. There was also strong opposition for GO using diesel trains instead of prioritizing an electrification of the Air-Rail Link from day 1.

Connecting routes

Connections are made on street at the nearby intersection of Weston Rd. and Lawrence Ave.
