Saint-Lambert station in Saint-Lambert, Quebec, Canada, serves RTM commuter rail, Via Rail and Amtrak intercity rail, and RTL buses. It is located at 329 Saint-Denis Ave. at the corner of Victoria Ave.

The station is served by two Via Rail lines: the Ocean and the Montreal–Gaspé train, and one Amtrak train, the Adirondack, which links to New York City. It is also used by the RTM for commuter rail service on the Mont-Saint-Hilaire line. There are four local buses routes[1] stopping at this station. The station was staffed by VIA Rail ticket agents until October 25, 2012. Since then, it has been unstaffed, but the station building is open before and after train arrival and departure times, to serve as a shelter for waiting passengers. It is not wheelchair-accessible. It is in AMT fare zone 3, and has 320 parking spaces.[1]

In 2012, plans were announced for the Adirondack to bypass the station entirely in the near future, following the opening of a new U.S. Customs preclearance facility at Montreal's Central Station.[4][5] As of March 2017, the United States Congress had passed the necessary legislation and the Parliament of Canada was considering it.[6]
