The station takes its name from Cascina Gobba, a nearby rural village.
The station was inaugurated in 1968 with the opening of the Linee celeri dell'Adda, served by interurban fast tram to Vaprio and Cassano d'Adda. The following year the station started to be part of the newly built Line 2 of Milan Metro as an east terminus of the line. Tram service was replaced with rapid transit in 1972.
