Bayview is a transitway and O-Train station in Ottawa, Ontario. The bus stop is at the western end of Albert Street. The O-Train station, the northern terminus of the Trillium Line, is located on a stub-end track branching off from the railway line, immediately under the Albert Street and transitway overpasses. Paved asphalt footpaths connect the two stops on opposite sides of the transitway and the train platform.

From the higher points of the station, one can just see the Parliament buildings across the LeBreton Flats.

The station is named for nearby Bayview Road. By 2018, the East-West Transitway between Tunney's Pasture and Blair Station will be converted to light-rail transit, becoming the Confederation Line, making Bayview an important rapid transit transfer point. It will also be a catalyst for large redevelopment including condos, hotels and the city's tallest office tower at 801 Albert. Plans also exist for converting a 1940s warehouse into a film studio and build an attached 15 storey "innovation hub". The station is close to Tom Brown Arena.
