York University GO Station
is a GO Transit railway station
on the Barrie line
commuter railway; it is the first station stop northbound and the eighth station stop southbound (excluding terminals). The station serves York University
, but is located 1.6 km (1 mile) away from the university's actual campus in an industrial development. A shuttle bus runs between the station and the university.
There is no station building; just a paved walkway, a paved platform to receive passengers and to board, a small bus shelter type enclosure to protect the ticket machine from the elements, a sign indicating the terminal (on both the road and at the station), railings and a posted schedule.
The construction of the platform and walkway was completed in 2002, funded by a provincial investment of $
850,000. It was built by Gottardo Construction Ltd.
The York University GO Station officially opened on September 6, 2002, though it had been put into service earlier.
In 2015, it will be replaced by a new station attached to the Sheppard West TTC station
, on the Spadina line
extension currently under construction.
The station is served by four trains heading southbound to Toronto each workday morning, and four trains heading northbound to Barrie in the afternoons. No train service is provided on weekends or holidays.
