Sunalta station is a CTrain light rail station in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It serves the West segment of the Blue Line.[1] A preview service was held on December 8, 2012,[2] and the station opened for revenue service on December 10, 2012.[3]

The station is located on an elevated guideway, constructed on the south side of the CPR mainline. It is located near 16 Street SW and the communities of Sunalta, Connaught, Scarboro and Downtown West,[4] 1.1 km West of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW Interlocking.

Inside the station building, escalators, stairs and an elevator provide access to the mezzanine level where the pedestrian overpass connects the station to Bow Trail and the Greyhound Bus Depot. From the mezzanine level, a further two sets of escalators, stairs, and elevators provide access up to the side-loading platform.

Sunalta is the first elevated station in the CTrain system and is the only station currently planned this way.[4][5][6] An Area Redevelopment Plan for the station's surroundings was approved by City Council in March 2010.[7]

In its first year of service, Sunalta served an average of 5,640 boardings per day.[8]
