St-Laurent is a station on Ottawa's transitway located at St. Laurent Boulevard and the Queensway.[2] The station is integrated to its surroundings, with direct indoor pedestrian access to the St. Laurent Shopping Centre. It serves as a major hub between transitway and local east end routes and has a ticket sales and information office. The station is to be converted to a light rail station in 2019, as part of Ottawa's Confederation Line project.

The station has two distinct platform areas. One platform area below grade serves main transitway route 95, Connexion routes and other routes using the transitway. In addition, intercity bus services also stop here on request. A second platform at grade serves numerous Local routes. The two platforms are connected primarily via escalators, in addition to the standard staircases and elevators.

This station required the complete reconstruction of the St. Laurent Boulevard / Highway 417 interchange and the construction of a tunnel to allow the transitway to cross underneath the Queensway. Its construction was linked to the last major expansion of the shopping centre in 1987.

In addition to serving the shopping centre, it serves numerous commercial and industrial areas in the area and is a major transfer point for east-end commuters, making it one of the busiest stations. An office building occupied in part by ING is also 200 metres west of the station.

On June 28, 2015, the main Transitway platforms closed for Confederation Line construction. As well, the Transitway between Hurdman station and Blair station is closed until 2019 so routes either end at Blair Station or Hurdman Station or travel via Ottawa Road 174 toward downtown. As well, new route 91 and all Connexion routes eastbound do not serve St. Laurent Station toward Orleans.[3]
