We are renovating the interiors of some CTrain stations to modernize them and improve accessibility, lighting, safety, communication systems and more.
All stations will remain open during construction and CTrain service will not be impacted. The station heads at SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee and Anderson will be closed for a period of time, but the platforms will remain open and accessible.

Why are these stations being renovated and how is it funded?
Rundle and Marlborough – These are two of the busiest and oldest stations on our system. They opened in 1985 and are due for life cycle upgrades. The funding for these renovations was primarily obtained through grants from the Provincial government and City funding.
Anderson, University, SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee, 39 Avenue, Zoo and Barlow/Max Bell – In 2016 we received funding from the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund to complete CTrain station upgrades. These six stations were chosen for renovations based on their need for lifecycle upgrades.
