Bayshore Transitway Station is a transit station on Ottawa, Ontario, Canada's transitway served by OC Transpo buses. It is located in the western transitway section at the Bayshore Shopping Centre in the neighbourhood of Bayshore.[1][2] It is the western terminus for rapid transit route 97 and route 101, as well as other crosstown routes such as route 2 and route 85.[3]

Prior to its construction, buses used Woodridge Crescent and entered the shopping centre parking lot, which is prone to congestion and extensive delays. Due to no access to Woodridge Crescent (first left) from Richmond Road (except emergency vehicles), routes 2, 97, 172, and 173 have to travel around the shopping centre, on Richmond Road and on Holly Acres Road, to enter the small bus-route access to the station. Eastbound trips of these four routes travel on Woodridge Crescent, then on Bayshore Drive and then their regular route from Richmond Road onward.

A second platform allows route 96 buses to zoom in and out of the station via a new Transitway Segment between Pinecrest Station and Bayshore Station,[2][3] which was built in 2009. All Kanata express routes and Stittsville express routes serve this stop at the station.[2][3] Due to service reorganization in the Crystal Beach area with the elimination of express route 59, some trips of route 96 start at Bayshore Station during morning rush hour (some as extension to local route 152 which has supplementary service to replace route 59).
