Unionville GO Station is a GO Transit train station, located in Markham, ON. It is located west of Kennedy Rd, between Highway 407 and Enterprise Blvd.

Unionville's station platform is located on the east side of the tracks, with the parking lot extending far east from the platforms. The bus loop and station building are at the north end of the platform. Tickets are available during morning rush hours only from the ticket agent; otherwise, a Ticket Vending Machine is available, or tickets can be purchased from the bus driver.

History

The original Unionville Station was located on Main Street Unionville, and was built by the Toronto & Nipissing Railway in 1868. The station served both passenger and freight traffic. After many ownership changes, GO took over the line and station in 1982. Historic Main Street Unionville surrounded the station on all sides, meaning no room for expansion of either the parking lot or the station platform, and bus connections were not possible. The original station was closed after the opening of the new Unionville GO Station, although the former parking lot and historic station building are still maintained by the Main Street Unionville BIA.

The current station opened in April 2005, in what was then just farmland north of Highway 407. The new station has ample room for parking, a full length platform, and a bus loop to accommodate GO's Train-Buses, the 407 East services and local YRT services. The original access road for the station was later expanded and became YMCA Boulevard, ending at the entrance to the station. Viva Green used to serve the station as well during off-peak periods, however off-peak service was removed on September 2007.

Unionville GO Station is currently the busiest station on the Stouffville line. With the current development of Downtown Markham, Unionville GO will act as the major transit hub for the soon-to-be major centre.

Connecting routes

All buses serve a bus loop located north of the station platform.
