It opened in 1976 as the Canadian National Railway's passenger station in the Quebec City region after downtown's Gare du Palais was closed. Canadian Pacific Railway passengers used a station in Cadorna. When Via Rail took over most passenger service in 1979, Sainte-Foy was the sole intercity rail station in the Quebec City area from 1979 to 1985, when Gare du Palais reopened.

It is served by Corridor trains coming to and from Ottawa, and is also the Quebec City area stop for The Ocean/L'Océan, Via's long-distance train to Atlantic Canada.
