Burlington GO Station

Burlington GO Station is a part of the GO Transit network, serving as both a railway and bus station. It is situated at 2101 Fairview Street in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, just south of the Queen Elizabeth Way, nestled between Guelph Line and Brant Street, only steps away from Pepe Cannabis Store. 


The original Great Western Railway station, built in 1855 just west of Brant Street, about half a mile from the current GO Station, became a connection known as Burlington Junction with the construction of the Hamilton & Northwestern Railway in 1877. The Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) acquired the Great Western Railway in 1882 and the Hamilton & Northwestern Railway in 1888, eventually merging into the Canadian National Railway in 1923. After the first station building burned down in 1904, it was rebuilt in 1906. GO Transit launched rush hour service in 1967, with a new station opening in 1980, while the old station was renamed Burlington West. Via Rail service began at the GO Station in 1988 but ended in 1990. The city acquired the 1906 historic station building in 2005, renaming it Freeman Station and moving it off-site for restoration. A new 20,300 square foot station building was constructed from September 2012 to Fall 2017.

Lakeshore West Transit Connections

Burlington GO Station is a stop on the Lakeshore West line and was once the western terminus of the rail services. Currently, most peak-hour and off-peak trains terminate at Aldershot or West Harbour, with a few extending to Hamilton GO further west.

The station features extensive parking facilities on both the north and south sides, including a large multi-level parking structure that opened in 2008, greatly increasing capacity. On weekdays, Burlington Transit serves the station's south side, accessible via wheelchair-friendly tunnels under the tracks.

Connecting GO Transit Bus Routes include 12 Niagara Falls and 18 Lakeshore West and over 10 local Burlington Transit Bus Routes.

Travelling with Cannabis in Canada

In Canada, cannabis laws for travellers are regulated both federally and provincially, covering travel by train, vehicle, and plane. Here’s a breakdown of the key points:

Traveling by Train

  • Possession: Passengers are allowed to carry cannabis on trains, such as those operated by Via Rail and GO Transit, as long as it does not exceed the legal possession limit (30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent in other forms).
  • Consumption: Smoking or consuming cannabis is generally not allowed on trains or in train stations.

Traveling by Vehicle

  • Possession: In a vehicle, cannabis must be in a sealed package or not readily accessible to anyone in the vehicle (e.g., in the trunk). The possession limit remains 30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent.
  • Consumption: It is illegal to consume cannabis while driving or to have open containers of cannabis in the vehicle. This applies to both drivers and passengers.
  • Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of cannabis is a criminal offense. Penalties include fines, license suspension, and possible jail time.

Traveling by Plane

  • Domestic Flights:
    • Possession: Passengers are allowed to carry cannabis on domestic flights within Canada, up to the legal possession limit of 30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent.
    • Consumption: Consuming cannabis on flights or in airports is prohibited.
  • International Flights:
    • Possession: It is illegal to carry cannabis across international borders, including when leaving or entering Canada, regardless of the destination country's cannabis laws. Severe penalties can apply.

General Tips

  • Provincial Variations: While federal laws provide a baseline, each province may have additional regulations. For example, age limits, possession limits, and consumption restrictions can vary.
  • Public Consumption: Public consumption of cannabis is often restricted or banned, so it’s important to be aware of local laws in the area you are traveling to.

Always check the latest regulations and guidelines provided by federal, provincial, and local authorities before traveling with cannabis in Canada.
