29th Avenue Station is located at an at-grade portion of the Expo Line, a part of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system.

The station is on 29th Avenue at Atlin Street, adjacent to Slocan Park, in the area of Vancouver known as "Renfrew Heights", an older, compact community. All of the Skytrain line through this community (from Nanaimo, to well past 29th Avenue) is located at ground level.

The station was built in 1985 as part of the original Expo Line, and provides services to a number of TransLink bus routes serving east Vancouver.

This station is located on the old right-of-way once used by the old British Columbia Electric Railway Central Park Line; this line ran from just west of Nanaimo Station all the way to where the current New Westminster Station is located.
