Blair is a station on Ottawa's transitway located at Blair Road and Regional Road 174.[1] It is the eastern terminal for several weekday trips of route 61 and crosstown route 12. Route 94 also joins the transitway at this station coming from Blair Road. It is also a major transfer point for commuters within urban Gloucester.

This station is adjacent to the Gloucester Centre shopping complex, and nearby the Silver City Gloucester mega-movie theatre, a small bank, and other major retail stores. Shoppers City East located across Blair Road contains also several other major stores such as Canadian Tire. A long pedestrian overpass for the Queensway provides access to office complexes, a small park and ride parking lot, and the Pineview residential area

This is the last station in the grade separated eastern leg of the transitway; buses use exclusive shoulder lanes on the Queensway beyond this point towards Orleans. There are no plans to move the transitway onto its own right-of-way beyond this point.

Effective 28 June 2015, the main Transitway platforms are closed for Confederation Line construction. As well, Cyrville Station and the Transitway west to Hurdman Station are closed, meaning routes either end at Blair Station or travel via Ottawa Road 174 toward downtown.[2]
