Trois-Rivières station is a former railway station in Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada. It was designated as a federal heritage site in 1990.


The station was built in 1924 to replace the original 1872 structure which served as the Trois-Rivierès stop along the route connecting Québec City and Montréal via the North Shore of the St. Lawrence River.

The station was acquired by Via Rail Canada in December 1985. In 1987 it became an intermodal station serving intercity bus traffic as well as trains. Passenger train service to Trois-Rivierès ceased as a result of the 1990 Via Rail cuts, and bus service to the station ceased in 1998. The station is now owned by the City of Trois-Rivierès and is used for purposes unrelated to transportation.
