GO Transit

Opening of the Georgetown GO train operation over the CN main line between
Toronto and Georgetown April 29, 1974 saw a small transit style station facility
located on South Station Street off John Street one short block east of Weston Road.
It was later expanded as ridership increased and eventually replaced entirely.
