Place d'Orléans (also simply called Orléans) is a transitway station in the Orléans community of the city of Ottawa, Ontario. It is located just off Regional Road 174 and Champlain Street right next to Place d'Orléans Shopping Centre.[1]

This is the main transit hub between local routes in Orléans and route 95.[2]

There is a Park and Ride lot located north of Regional Road 174 off Champlain street. This lot is accessible from the main station by a covered pedestrian overpass, and is also serviced by route 95 as it departs towards downtown via the Transitway. This parking lot reaches capacity on a daily basis, and, overflow parking is allowed at the south-west corner of the Place d'Orléans Shopping Centre. The Trim Station and associated park and ride lot were constructed in part to alleviate pressure on the Orléans park and ride lot.

Peak period trips on route 95 departing from Trim Station do not serve the station itself, and instead access the Park & Ride directly from Regional Road 174 on their way downtown.[2]

During the summer, route 198 provides special weekend service to Petrie Island Beach, located just off Trim Road.[2]

As of August 31, 2014, route 101 replaces route 102's rush hour service, and provides service directly to and from Bayshore Station via the Transitway, Carling Avenue, and Highway 417.[3] This change also re-establishes the direct connection between the west Transitway and Orléans that was removed when route 102 was created. Since 20 December 2015, route 103 has replaced route 101 to/from Orleans, but maintains the direct connection to/from Bayshore Station. However, route 103 does not serve Hurdman Station in either direction, nor does the 103 serve St-Laurent Station on eastbound trips.
