Barlow/Max Bell is a stop on the Northeast Line (Route 202) of the C-Train light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. The station opened on April 27, 1985 as part of the original Northeast line.

The station is located in the median of Memorial Drive Southeast, located at the intersection with 19 Street Northeast. The station is 3.9 km from the City Hall Interlocking.

The station serves industrial and commercial areas located along Barlow Trail, such as Mayland, as well as the neighbourhood of Radisson Heights/Albert Park and the Max Bell Centre arena. A small 50 space parking lot is available for commuters.
