Central Station is a station on the LRT system (Route 201) in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is operated by the Edmonton Transit System, and was one of the original five stations when the line opened on April 22, 1978. When the LRT opened, Central Station was the original terminus at the south end of the line.
It is in the downtown core beneath Jasper Avenue between 100 Street and 101 Street. It is located between Churchill Station and Bay/Enterprise Square Station. There is direct underground access to Telus Plaza, Scotia Place and Commerce Place from the station at the concourse level.
The station has a 125 metre long centre loading platform that can accommodate two five-car LRT trains at the same time, with one train on each side of the platform. At just under eight metres wide, the platform is narrow by current Edmonton LRT design guidelines. Access to the platform is from the concourse level by stairs and escalators located at each end of the platform. The concourse level is part of the Edmonton pedway system.
ETS once operated a Transit Information kiosk at 100A Street and Jasper Avenue, above the station; however, it has since been relocated to Churchill Station. The building now serves as an entrance for users requiring an elevator to get to the station platform.
