Millennium Station is a current rapid-transit bus-stop and a future OC Transpo Transitway Station located in the Orleans, Ontario area of Ottawa, Canada, just south of the intersection of Innes Road and Trim Road. Starting in September 2007, it is the eastern terminus of most Route 94 trips as well as Express Routes 22 & 30, and local routes 122 & 130. It is also located just southwest of École Secondaire Gisèle-Lalonde which is served by routes 120, 122, 130, 135, 611, 612 and 632. [1]

The Millennium stop first appeared in the OC Transpo official route network map for their 2007-2008 schedule that is in effect starting on September 2, 2007. The stop itself as expected to be the eastern terminus of a future Transitway segment that would connect to Blair Station by 2013. The Ottawa 2020 Transportation Master Plan also has plans to convert the bus rapid transit segment to a future east-west by 2021 light-rail route from Kanata to Orleans via Bells Corners, Nepean Centre, South Keys and Greenboro with a connection to the existent north-south O-Train Line that runs from Greenboro to Bayview stations with plans to extend south and north towards Leitrim/Riverside South and Downtown respectively although without serving Barrhaven South due to the canceled extension plan of the original north-south line project in December 2006.[2]

In addition, the City of Ottawa has approved in conjunction of the new service, the construction of a new park and ride facility slated for completion by 2009.[3]
