History

In 2002, with infrastructure funding from the provincial government, GO Transit expanded the station's parking lot capacity from 111 spaces to 255. cite web|url=http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/news/regional/2002/073102.htm|title=Province announces major parking expansion at King City GO Station|publisher=Government of Ontario Ministry of Transportation|year=2002|accessdate=2006-04-28]

During 2004, the platform was extended in order to accommodate longer trainsets, thus removing any boarding restrictions that GO Transit had with this station prior to opening the extended rail platform. In addition, the extension also eliminated the problem of GO trains blocking a railroad crossing on Station Road while passengers boarded and disembarked.

Construction of a covered station building was completed in the summer of 2005, and a second parking lot on the west side of the tracks was opened in February 2006.cite web|url=http://www.gotransit.com/PUBLIC/news/bulletin/Feb3_KingCityparking.htm|title=King City station gets more parking|work=Customer Bulletins|publisher=GO Transit|year=2006|accessdate=2006-05-14]

Bus connections are made at the intersection of Station Road and Keele Street.
