Dalhousie station is a CTrain light rail station in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Located in the Dalhousie neighbourhood, it serves the Northwest Line (Route 201). It opened on December 15, 2003 as part of a 2.8 km (1.73 miles) extension of the Northwest line, and was the terminal station of the Northwest line until June 14, 2009.
The station is located in the median of Crowchild Trail, just East of 53 Street Northwest and is 9 km Northwest of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW interlocking. The station opened on December 15, 2003, and was the first CTrain station to open with a four-car platform. Since then, all new extension stations have opened with four-car platforms.
The station has 760 parking spaces. From the stations opening in 2003, the park and ride lot was very crowded and would fill up very early in the morning. Since Crowfoot station opened in 2009 with almost double the spaces as Dalhousie, the situation has eased somewhat.
Pedestrian overpasses connect to the station from both the North and South sides of Crowchild Trail. Two escalators, a set of stairs, and an elevator provide access down to the platform. The station serves the adjacent communities of Dalhousie and Varsity, as well as Dalhousie Station, a regional shopping centre.
In 2008, the station registered an average of 18,300 boardings per weekday.
