Clareview Station is an LRT station operated by the Edmonton Transit System in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is located near 42 Street and 139 Avenue, and is named for the northeast Edmonton District of Clareview. At present, Clareview station is the northern terminus of LRT Route 201 in Edmonton.

The station was opened on April 26, 1981, in the same year Calgary opened its first CTrain line.

Major renovations to the station were officially opened on March 4, 2001. These renovations include: a new covered station platform, two bus terminals, the addition of wheelchair ramps at station entrances, and a pedestrian underpass connecting the station to both bus terminals.[1]

The station has a 123 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. The platform is just over nine metres wide.[2]

The two bus terminals are West Clareview (near Manning Drive) and East Clareview (near 42 Street). Routes serving the West Clareview terminal include routes 2, 181, 184, 190, 192, 193 and 198. Routes serving East Clareview include routes 10, 11, 182, 183, 185, 186, 187, 188 and 302.

Clareview Station has Park & Ride facilities with 1372 parking spaces. Park & Ride allows people to park their cars for free at the station and use public transportation to reach their destinations. This is an advantage for users who are travelling to popular destinations such as Rexall Place, Commonwealth Stadium, downtown Edmonton, and the University of Alberta.[1]
