Du Ruisseau is a commuter rail station on the AMT Deux-Montagnes Line in the Greater Montreal, Quebec, Canada area.

Origin of name[edit]

Du Ruisseau takes its name from nearby Boulevard Du Ruisseau, located in the heart of the subdivision.

Prior to the modernization of the Deux-Montagnes Line, between 1993 and 1995, this area was served by the Monkland station, located some 700 metres further west at the O'Brien Avenue level crossing. It was intended that line 2 be extended at this end. The proposed Bois-Franc metro station could have been intermodal with the former Monkland station.

Location[edit]

The station is located at 3735 Henri-Bourassa Boulevard West, between Jules-Poitras Boulevard and Dutrisac Street, just west of Autoroute 15 exit # 3 in Saint-Laurent on the border with Cartierville. It is located about one kilometre from the Bois-de-Boulogne station on the Saint-Jérôme Line.
