The 3rd Street Southeast stop was only used by westbound Route 202 trains (but still at the junction where the Northeast and South lines converge into the 7 Avenue Transit Mall). The Platform for the station was located on the north side of 7th Avenue South between 4 Street and 3 Street SE. The station opened on April 27, 1985 along with the Northeast Line and was permanently closed on May 3, 2010 and demolished immediately afterward.
The 3 Street SE platform was one of three downtown platforms slated for decommissioning as part of Calgary Transit's Seventh Avenue refurbishment. This station has been replaced with the new dual-platform City Hall station located one block West which opened on July 6, 2011. From the stations closure on May 3, 2010 and up until July 6, 2011 transit customers had to use the Olympic Plaza station two blocks West.
In 2005, the station registered an average of 3,400 boardings per weekday, by far the lowest of all the stations in the downtown.
