McMaster University GO Bus Terminal is located on the campus of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, between the Mary E. Keyes Residence and H.G. Thode Library. GO Transit has exclusive use of this terminal.

McMaster University has become a major destination for GO bus services, and ridership is now comparable to some GO train stations. The new accessible terminal, which opened on April 5, 2007, includes five bus bays, three heated shelters, and large platforms.[1] The terminal will easily be able to handle an increase in the current rate of more than 2,000 rides per day.
