Greenboro Station is one of the 5 original O-Train stations in Ottawa. Opened on October 15, 2001, with the initial network, this station is located in the South Keys area of Ottawa. 

This station primarily serves the large South Keys shopping plaza, and the nearby residential areas, as well as providing a connection to local transit service by bus.

Greenboro Station is accessible from inside the bus station of the same name, located near Bank Street and Johnston Road.

The station's layout is more elaborate than most on the Trillium Line, owing to the fact that it is integrated with the bus rapid transit service and Transitway. From the outside, the only entry and exit points are through the fare gate kiosk. From there, a series of overhead walkways allow you to reach the two bus transit platforms and the one O-Train platform at the very end. The platforms for the buses are accessed by a choice of stairs or elevators, while the O-Train platform is level with the entrance.

This station was modified in 2017 to accommodate the fare gate kiosk and entrance at the front.

Since its opening in 2001, Greenboro Station has been the Southern terminus for the Trillium Line. As a result, all departing trains leave in the direction of Bayview. This will change in 2021 when the line is extended further South.

There isn't any public art on display at this station. Its location, especially that of the O-Train platform, is surrounded by lots of green vegetation, making for a calm and relaxing place to wait for the next train's arrival.


A unique feature of Greenboro station is how the pedestrian overpass between the bus station and the O-Train platform is of a different design than the existing bus overpass.


Greenboro Station does not currently feature any public artwork.

  • Opening Date: October 15, 2001

  • Previous Station: Mooney's Bay (2815 metres)


  • Balanced Boardings: 98,000
  • Weekday Average: 4,000

Balanced boardings are the average number of entries and exits at O-Train stations. O-Train Line 2 ridership is based on Automatic Passenger Counters aboard O-Train Line 2 trains. It is important to note that the figures above for Greenboro Station will also capture customers who are using the station to access bus service.

Line 2 (Trillium Line) is currently closed and in the process of being expanded for the Line 2 South Extension, which will see longer trains and double platforms. Below are some concept renders of the expanded station (Line 2), scheduled to open in 2022.

Greenboro Station is a transfer station on the existing Trillium Line. Platform extensions will be designed and constructed with all related shelters and requirements.
