Strandherd Station is a transit station in Ottawa, Ontario. It opened on January 2, 2007 and contains a park and ride facility with over 300 parking spaces available. It is located northeast of the intersection of Strandherd Drive and the access to the Riocan Marketplace shopping area, where Barrhaven Centre Station and Marketplace Station opened in mid-2012. This is part of OC Transpo's plans to extend its southwest transitway to its suburb areas.
Route 95 was extended to Strandherd Station when the facility opened. The park and ride lot provides additional spaces for south end residents in Barrhaven, Heart's Desire, Davidson Heights and Manotick. Special route 406 also serves the station.
Route 95 takes 5 minutes to travel to Fallowfield Station when service was improved in 2012, when the new right-of-way (running through a field parallel to Greenbank Road) was finished, and buses now travel without having to stop for traffic signals or getting caught in traffic on Greenbank Road.
The following routes serve Strandherd Station:
95 170 171 177am 205 406
Routes 71 and 73 are available at the corner of Transitway/Berrigan Drive. Routes 170 and 171 are also available nearby at the corner of Strandherd Drive/Riocan Avenue. Route 173 is available on Marketplace Avenue and at Marketplace Station.
