Proposed Access from Crowchild Trail into Rocky Ridge/Royal Oak
Feb. 5, 2014 - Update and recommendation on proposal
Tuscany Station is now open!
The northwest CTrain line has been extended past Crowfoot Station to a new station, called Tuscany Station, providing transit service to people living and working in Rocky Ridge, Royal Oak and Tuscany. The station, and the associated Park and Ride lots, opened for service on Aug. 23, 2014. Transportation Infrastructure, a business unit at The City of Calgary, was the project manager to build the station, the Park & Ride lots and the new train tracks. Their work is now complete and ownership and maintenance of the station has transferred to Calgary Transit.
Please review the Riders Guide for information on the new station, on LRT and bus service, and for information on walking and biking to the station. The new and revised bus routes serving the station are now in operation. Please contact Calgary Transit for information on bus and train schedules.
Park & Ride lots
Tuscany Station has two Park & Ride lots, one on the Tuscany (south) side with parking stalls and one on the Rocky Ridge (north) side with 282 parking stalls. As is the case with many Park & Ride lots, about half of these spots are available for general parking and about half are available as Reserved Parking spots. Please visit Calgary Transit for more information on Park & Ride lots and for information on Reserved Parking, which is available by online reservation, or call 403-262-1000.
For parking in areas adjacent to Park & Ride lots, pleae obey all posted signage and do not block access to businesses or residences. The City of Calgary has established Residential Parking Zones near the station to allow residents to apply for Residential Parking Permits. Please visit the web page on this program to learn more about parking permits.
Eamon’s building and sign update
The sign from the Eamon’s gas station has undergone a refurbishment and has been returned to a spot in the Rocky Ridge Park and Ride. The building has been moved off-site so construction could proceed on the Park and Ride lot.
A Leasing Opportunity for the Eamon’s Building has been posted on The City of Calgary web site, which will remain open until a suitable lessee is found. For more information on the Eamon’s building and the sign, please see this update.

The Automated Public Toilet, located in the Rocky Ridge Park and Ride lot, has been painted by local artist, Roman L’Abbee, with his three-sided mural titled ‘Flotsam’. The work reflects on wind energy, which is the source of the CTrain’s power. The composition represents three factors that make wind energy possible; sun, water and wind.
