Barlow/Max Bell station is a CTrain light rail station in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It serves the Northeast Line (Route 202). It 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.

The station's center-loading (island) platform is accessed via ramps from a pedestrian tunnel under Memorial Drive. Barlow/Max Bell and Zoo are the only stations in the system that are constructed this way.

As part of Calgary Transit's plan to operate 4-car trains by the end of 2014, all 3-car platforms are being extended. Barlow/Max Bell station will also see new furnishings in addition to a platform extension. Construction is expected to start sometimes in early 2014 and will last approximately 6 months. [1]

In 2005, the station registered and average transit of 1,600 boardings per weekday.[2]
