Tiyu Xilu Station (Chinese: 体育西路站; pinyin: Tǐyù Xīlù Zhàn; Jyutping: tai2juk6 sai1lou6 zaam6; literally: 'Tiyu (Sports) Road West Station') is an interchange station on Line 1 and Line 3 of the Guangzhou Metro. It started operations on 28 June 1999 (for Line 1) and 26 December 2005 (for Line 3). It is situated under Tiyu Road West (体育西路) and Tianhe 1st South Road (天河南一路) in the Tianhe District of Guangzhou. It is near Teemall (天河城广场) and Guangzhou Books Center (广州购书中心), which makes it one of the busiest metro stations in Guangzhou.
The platforms for Line 1 are in the standard island platform layout whilst on Line 3 there are two island platforms serving three tracks. Northbound services to Tianhe Coach Terminal and southbound services to Panyu Square use the outer tracks whilst the train service to the airport uses the single centre track. The doors open on both sides of the centre track to allow cross-platform interchange in both directions.
The station was designated as busiest in the country by a fair margin with 1,252,064 passengers per day in 2017.
