Fallowfield is a bus station on Ottawa's transitway system. Operated by OC Transpo, it is located at Woodroffe Avenue and Fallowfield Road in the community of Barrhaven, next to the Fallowfield railway station.

Fallowfield Station is a major transfer point for many riders and is served by routes 94 and 95. It is also a waypoint on local routes including some by private operators under OC Transpo's Rural Partner Service. It has a park and ride lot, and bicycle racks and lockers under the 'Rack & Roll' program.

Fallowfield used to be the main southwestern terminus of route 95. Since April 17, 2011, most trips that serve Fallowfield continue to the southwest to Barrhaven Centre Station and Marketplace Station via Longfields Station.

On September 18, 2013, a collision took place between an OC Transpo bus and a VIA train, at a level crossing located north of Fallowfield station. Six people died and many more were injured as a result.[1]
