Long Description:
Place d'Orléans (also called Orléans Station) 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.

This is the main transit hub between local routes in Orléans and Route 95.

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 on the westbound 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.

Place d'Orleans is 5 minutes away from Trim, and 9 minutes from Blair Station. At this station, you can reach the closest major station, Hurdman, within 16 minutes, or traverse the city to Baseline or Fallowfield in 46 and 55 minutes respectively.

The following routes serve Place d'Orleans Station:
20 21 22 27 35 37 95 101 102 118 120 122 125 127 130 131 135 136 137 199 221 401 607 608 618 627 631 676 678 695

Note: Route 101 doesn't provide westbound service between Place d'Orleans and Blair before 8:00a.m. on weekdays.

Interesting architecture:
This station is functional in that it provides easy access to the Park and Ride and the Shopping Centre via an elevated and enclosed walkway. Most of the Ottawa bus stations are stylistically similar with prominence given to the colour red which, with white, are the official Ottawa Transpo colours.
