Shawnessy is a station on the South Line (Route 201) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. It is located on the exclusive LRT right of way (adjacent to the CPR ROW), 16 km South of the City Hall Interlocking.
It was one of the two new stations to open on June 28, 2004 as part of the South LRT Extension Phase II. The station is located along Shawville Boulevard and serves the communities of Midnapore and Shawnessy, as well as the adjacent Shawnessy Towne Center shopping district.
The station's side-loading platforms are staggered with a pedestrian crossing of the tracks between the two platforms. This is the first LRT station in Calgary to have staggered platforms. The second station to be constructed this way is Martindale in the N.E. 206 parking spaces are made available at the station.
The station platforms were originally built to accommodate four-car-length trains.
In 2005, the station registered an average of 3,900 boardings per weekday.
