The 4 Street Southwest station is a CTrain light rail station in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The 4 Street Southwest platform is served by westbound trains only, with the nearest eastbound platforms being the 3 Street Southwest station and the 6 Street Southwest station. The platform is located on the north side of 7 Avenue South, within the free-fare zone serving both Routes 201 and 202.

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.[1]

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 11,100 daily boardings in 2005.[2]
