NAIT Station is a LRT station on the Metro Line in Edmonton, Alberta. The station will be temporarily located north of Princess Elizabeth Avenue, on the south side of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's swimming pool and hockey arena wing, before a permanent station is ultimately built after a long-term comprehensive land use plan of the Edmonton City Centre Airport lands are finalized.[3][4][5] NAIT Station is the northern terminus of the Metro Line.

History[edit]

Preliminary engineering of the line was completed July 2009 and construction of the phase from the MacEwan Station to NAIT began in the summer of 2011. The station was supposed to open in 2014.[6] However, due to delays it opened on September 6, 2015.[1]

Station layout[edit]

NAIT Station is an at-grade station with a centre platform. Unlike the other LRT stations in Edmonton, the platform at NAIT Station will only accommodate three-car trains. This is because it is a temporary station.
