Kennedy GO Station is a GO Transit train station located in Toronto, ON. It is located beside Kennedy Subway Station, south of Eglinton Ave. between Kennedy Rd. and Midland Ave.

The station consists only of a single platform on the east side of the tracks, with no separate station building, no dedicated parking lot (although pay parking is available using the TTC's lots) and no bike shelter. A tunnel goes underneath the tracks to link into the subway station. Tickets are available for purchase only from a Ticket Vending Machine.

History

Although Kennedy Station existed on the site ever since GO began operations on the Stouffville line in 1982, a connection between the two was never made but often proposed. One possible reason why the Milton line made a similar connection at Kipling years earlier was the heavier ridership on the Milton line, and with lower ridership on the Stouffville line, it was thought that a connection would not be well utilized.

Kennedy GO Station opened June 2, 2005, and is currently the second newest station on the Stouffville line. With its main purpose mostly for connections to the TTC subway system, it has very few passenger facilities, including no parking, bicycle storage or station building, and will be unlikely to gain these in the future.

Connecting routes

The station is connected to TTC Kennedy Subway Station, and local transit connections are available there.
