69 Street SW is the sixth and terminal station on the West LRT line of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. Revenue service started on December 10, 2012. The station was opened for the public on December 8, 2012, as part of a preview of the new West Line. It was also the site of the official grand opening ceremony for the line itself.

The trenched station is located at the intersection of 69th Street SW and 17th Avenue SW, 8.2 km West of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW Interlocking. Ambrose University College and the new Ernest Manning High School, which replaced the old one at 17 Avenue & 33 Street SW, due to the construction of the Westbrook station, are located adjacent to the 69 St. SW station. Another major school, Rundle College, is located a block away. The station is also near the Westside Recreation Centre.

69 Street along with 45 Street are the first trenched stations to be built in Calgary.

The centre-loading platform is accessed at both the east and west ends through station heads providing access to the platform via escalator, staris, and an elevator.

The station includes a large Park & Ride lot that can accommodate 840 vehicles and it includes a multi-level parkade.

The West Line is planned to be extended further west, past 69 Street SW, to Aspen Woods and Springbank Hill, once the population of those areas is sufficient for LRT. The extension is not expected to happen until after 2023, so 69 Street SW will be the terminus station for at least 10 years, barring a future change of planning.
