Amqui station is a Via Rail station in Amqui, Quebec, Canada. Located on Boulevard Saint-Benoît Boulevard Ouest, it is a heated and semi-staffed shelter equipped with washrooms and is wheelchair-accessible. Amqui is served by Via Rail's Ocean, and Montreal – Gaspé train. Both trains share the same rail line between Montreal and Matapédia.
The station is representative of the boom in rail use in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the associated expansion of the railways in general, and the Intercolonial Railway of Canada (IRC) in particular. Amqui depended on the railway to transport their agricultural products and finished parts made of wood. Subsequently, Amqui became an important stop on the train's route from Montréal to Halifax, and from Montréal to Gaspé.
