Sainte-Dorothée station is a commuter rail station operated by the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) in Laval, Quebec, Canada.

It is served by the Deux-Montagnes line.

Origin of name[edit]

Sainte-Dorothée takes its name from the Sainte-Dorothée district of Laval, Quebec.

Between 1993 and 1995, prior to the modernization of the Deux-Montagnes Line, there were three stations served now by Sainte-Dorothée, from north to south: Laval-sur-le-Lac, Laval-Links, and Sainte-Dorothée. There were plans to amalgamate Île-Bigras into this station as well, but plans were shelved after an outcry from residents of Île-Bigras.

Location[edit]

The station is located at 1411 chemin du Bord-de-l'Eau at rue Gobeil, in Laval. It is easily accessible from Autoroute 440 which, west of Autoroute 13, becomes Avenue des Bois.

Future projects[edit]

Upon completion of the Réseau express métropolitain, this station is expected to be upgraded to rapid transit standards and integrated into the new network.

  1. When the Metro extended into Laval, the STL 44 Samson, the T06 Les Jardins du Cardinal -- Taxi & the STL 72 Sainte-Rose were eliminated while the STL 144 Bord de l'eau no longer terminates at Sainte Dorothée train station.[2][4] The AMT website still shows the STL 144 and omits the STL 26 in error.[1]
  2. The STL route 804 was a pilot project. It is longer listed on the STL official website.[4]
