Saint-Lambert railway station (IATA:XLM) is located at 329 Saint-Denis Ave. at the corner of Victoria Ave., in Saint-Lambert, Quebec, Canada. This station is in AMT fare zone 3, and has 320 parking spaces.[1] The station is served by several Via Rail routes running from Montreal, the Ocean to Halifax, and the Montreal – Gaspé train, and one Amtrak train, the Adirondack, which links to New York City. It is also used by the AMT for commuter rail service on the Mont-Saint-Hilaire Line. There are four RTL local buses routes[1] stopping at this station.

The station was staffed by VIA Rail ticket agents until October 25, 2012. Since then, it has been unstaffed, but the station building is open before and after train arrival and departure times, to serve as a shelter for waiting passengers. It is not wheelchair-accessible.
