Lucien-L'Allier station is a commuter rail terminal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is the terminal for the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) Vaudreuil-Hudson, Saint-Jérôme, and Candiac lines. Lucien-L'Allier is in Fare Zone 1.[1] It is one of the two downtown terminals for Montreal commuter trains, the other being Montreal Central Station.

Origin of name[edit]

Lucien L'Allier station takes its name from the nearby Lucien L'Allier Montreal Metro station. This station is in turn named for rue Lucien-L'Allier, the original name of which, rue de l'Aqueduc, was changed in order to commemorate Lucien L'Allier, chief engineer for the initial network of the Montreal Metro and for the construction of Saint Helen's Island and Île Notre-Dame for Expo 67.

Originally, the terminus of the commuter rail line was the monumental Windsor Station (Gare Windsor), which was also the headquarters of Canadian Pacific Railway until it moved to Calgary in 1996. This station was separated from the rails by the construction of the Molson Centre (now Bell Centre), which integrated a new commuter train terminal. Originally called Terminus Windsor, this new terminal was renamed Gare Lucien-L'Allier to reduce confusion with the original Windsor Station, which still exists but is no longer a train station.


The station is located at 1290 Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal (the street was formerly called Rue de la Gauchetière), near the historic Windsor Station, and is connected by an enclosed walkway to Lucien-L'Allier Metro station.

Terminus Lucien-L'Allier is the eastern end of the Canadian Pacific Railway's Westmount Subdivision.
