The 3 Street Southwest and 4 Street Southwest platforms are stops in downtown Calgary on the city's CTrain light rail system.

The 3 Street Southwest platform is used by eastbound trains, and the 4 Street Southwest platform is used by westbound trains. Both platforms are located on the sides of 7 Avenue South and are located within the free-fare zone serving both Routes 201 and 202.

The 3 Street W station, located between 3 Street & 2 Street SW and adjacent to TD Square (shopping center) opened on May 25, 1981 as part of Calgary's original LRT line from 8 Street W to Anderson. The original station was closed on April 20, 2009, and demolished immediately with the new station constructed in its place. The new station opened on March 12, 2010.[1][2]

The 4 Street W station, located between 4 Street & 5 Street SW opened on May 25, 1981, as part of Calgary's original LRT line from 8 Street W to Anderson. The original station was closed on January 7, 2010 and demolished immediately with the new station constructed in its place. The new station opened on January 21, 2011.[3]

Like all refurbished 7 Avenue platforms, the entire sidewalk slopes up to the station at both ends and the platform can handle 4-car trains.

The station registered an average of 16,300 and 11,100 daily boardings in 2005 (for the 3rd and 4th Street platforms respectively).[4]
