Coliseum LRT Station
The station is one of the original five stations, and opened on April 22, 1978.
Although Coliseum was never a terminus of the LRT line, all trains started and ended their runs at Coliseum when the fleet of LRT rail cars was maintained at the Cromdale garage nearby. The fleet is now housed at the D.L. MacDonald Transit Yard, which was completed in December 1983.
ETS is exploring options to make the station more accommodating during the harsh winter months in Edmonton. An enclosed pedway connecting the station to the Edmonton Expo Centre and a way to "shut in" the station are planned. The station may also be renamed to include "Northlands".
The station has a 124 metre long centre loading platform that can accommodate two five-car LRT trains at the same time, with one train on each side of the platform. The platform is just under eight metres wide, which is narrow by current Edmonton LRT design guidelines.
The public art for Coliseum Station is a mural entitled "People on the Move" painted by Works 2 Works students.
