Saint-Jérôme station is an intermodal transit station in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, Canada. It serves CIT Laurentides and intercity buses as well as Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) commuter rail trains on the Saint-Jérôme line.

Description[edit]

It serves bus routes operated by the CIT Laurentides, a suburban transit agency, and by two intercity bus companies. In addition to loading areas for buses, it includes train platforms which are used by the Saint-Jérôme line. The line is operated by the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM), the umbrella organization that integrates and coordinates public transportation services in the Greater Montreal area. Commuter trains towards Montreal began serving the station on Monday, January 8, 2007, with four (of 10) trains on weekdays. The ride from Saint-Jérôme to Lucien-L'Allier station takes 85 minutes.[3] Saint-Jérôme is in Fare Zone 7,[1] and the station currently has parking for 775 cars.[1]

The station is built primarily of wood, drawing its inspiration from the former Canadian Pacific Railway station in Saint-Jérôme and from industrial architecture of the 1900s. [4]

The former Canadian Pacific Railway station in Saint-Jérôme at 160, rue de la Gare (in the former civic numbering, 301 Sainte-Anne Street) was designated in 1994 as a heritage railway station by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada,[5] and is now used as an exhibition space and events facility.

Location[edit]

Some documents[which?] give the station's address as 455, boul. Jean-Baptiste-Rolland E.[1] in Saint-Jérôme, but the address is more commonly shown as 280, rue Latour.
