Rundle is a stop on the Northeast Line (Route 202) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. The station opened on April 27, 1985 as part of the original Northeast line.

The station is located in the median of 36 Street NE, to the north of the intersection of 20 Avenue NE/Rundlehorn Drive, right in front of Sunridge Mall. The station is 8.4 km from the City Hall Interlocking. Pedestrian overpasses connect the station to both sides of 36 Street NE. Stairs, escalators, as well as an elevator provide access down to the centre-loading platform.

The station serves the communities of Rundle and Pineridge, and the Sunridge Mall shopping centre. Peter Lougheed Centre, one of Calgary's major hospitals, is located north-west of the station and is only a short walk. 350 parking spaces are included at the station.

As part of Calgary Transit's plan to operate 4-car trains by the end of 2014, all 3-car platforms are being extended. In addition to a platform extension, Rundle station had upgraded station furnishings installed. Construction was completed in Fall 2013.[1]

In 2005, the station registered and average transit of 11,600 boardings per weekday.[2]

On 20 January 1993, a 4-year old child, Michael MacIntosh, got his jacket sleeve stuck at the bottom of the escalator after straying from his family. Bystanders helped him stay conscious until paramedics arrived and free his injured left arm.
