Churchill LRT Station is an LRT station on the Capital Line in Edmonton, Alberta. It is an underground station located beneath Churchill Square and is a part of the Edmonton Pedway system.
Churchill Station opened on April 22, 1978 when the LRT system first began operations.
In November 2006, Churchill became the first LRT station in Edmonton to have an exclusive ad campaign, with all ad space, as well as many other parts of the station, in the station being used by ads for Enmax.
The station has a 129 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 meters 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.
The LRT system control centre is located on the Churchill Station concourse level. The Edmonton Transit System Customer Services centre, complete with lost and found, was also located in the station before moving to City Hall in February 2013. At one time, windows allowed pedestrians to view the control centre, but these were removed in 2008.
The station serves as a transfer point for the Metro Line, Capital Line, and future Valley Line.
Churchill Station includes two pieces of public art. The first, "Ridden Down" is an abstract sculpture using welded steel that was installed in 1996. The second is a mural entitled "New Year's Eve".
