Lincoln Fields station
|Ottawa Transitway station|
|Owned by||OC Transpo|
Lincoln Fields is a station on Ottawa's transitway located at Carling Avenue and the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. It is adjacent but not connected to nearby Lincoln Heights Galleria Shopping Centre. It is the main western hub of the transitway system and has a ticket sales and information office as well as a small convenience store. Many express services serving the eastern end of the city use this station as its western terminus, particularly when the next run of that bus starts in the west end. Like Hurdman Station in the east, the transitway routes branch off in two directions: westward to Kanata and Stittsville, and southward to Barrhaven. The western branch of the transitway from this point is currently incomplete, forcing westbound routes to use existing streets such as Carling Avenue and the Queensway.

The station has two distinct platform areas. One platform area serves main transitway route 94, route 95 and route 91 to Baseline Station and Barrhaven, and routes 61, 62, to Bayshore Station, and Kanata, along with numerous Connexion and peak period routes to the western and southwestern suburbs. A second platform serves routes that either branch off to Carling Avenue, such as route 16, route 85 (eastbound only) and route 97, or travel south on the Transitway (routes 82, 84 and 152). Elevated walkways connect the two platforms and provide street level access from Carling Avenue.
Rapid route 63 and Local route 64 serve the local platform during most time periods. However, AM peak trips westbound serve the main Transitway stop at Lincoln Fields Station as these trips start at Lebreton Station, while AM peak trips eastbound only allow you to get off in the "Off Only" section of the eastbound platform as these trips end at Mackenzie King Station. Similarly, PM peak trips serve the station's main platform in both directions, with the eastbound platform still being "Off Only" as it serves Lebreton Station.
Shopper's bus route 301 (serving Richmond on Mondays), route 303 (serving Carp and Dunrobin on Wednesdays), and route 305 (serving Manotick, Kars, and North Gower on Fridays) travel via Carling Avenue to/from Carlingwood Mall (the terminus for routes 301, 303, and 305).
Connexion routes from Barrhaven, Bells Corners, Stittsville, and Kanata only allow passengers to get off at this station in the morning upon request, but skip it altogether in the afternoon with the exception of route 282 which provides service during the AM peak as well as during the PM peak. This includes route 283 that allows passengers to get off at this station upon request during the AM peak, but returns into full service during the PM peak towards Stittsville/Ottawa-Richmond.
