Edmonton railway station is on the Canadian National Railway mainline in Edmonton, Alberta. The railway station is located near the Edmonton City Centre Airport, approximately 5.5 kilometres from the city centre. Served by Via Rail's The Canadian three times per week in each direction,[1] the station is unusually located on a branch of the main line, meaning that trains must either reverse into or out. The station opened in 1998 following the closure of the downtown Via Rail station which was located in the lower level of Edmonton's CN Tower.

Greyhound[edit]

Greyhound Canada's new bus station is scheduled to open here 30 May 2016.[2] Greyhound is planning to operate a shuttle bus for their passengers with tickets, to deal with lack of public transit to station.[3] There is no stop for Edmonton Transit System Route 12[4] which temporary passes the station during road construction on 127 Street.[3]
