Tuscany is the northern terminus of the Northwest Line (Route 201) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta when the 2 km (1.24 miles) extension of Route 201 opened on 23 August 2014. Originally referred to in planning documents as Tuscany/Rocky Ridge Station, Calgary Transit simplified the name on the recommendation of the Community Consultation Committee.

The station, originally planned for completion past 2023, was approved and funded by Calgary City Council on 7 November 2007 for completion by 2011. The station had been included as part of Mayor Dave Bronconnier's re-election platform during the 2007 Municipal elections. Construction was to begin in the Spring of 2009 with completion in Fall 2011. However, budget issues as well as a delay with the Crowchild Trail/Stoney Trail Interchange delayed the start of construction three years to Spring 2012 with an opening date of 23 August 2014.

The station is located in the median of Crowchild Trail, to the west of Rocky Ridge Road, and is adjacent to the communities of Tuscany to the south, and Rocky Ridge to the north. The station is the final station currently planned for the Northwest leg of the CTrain, and is located approximately 2 kilometers northwest of the currently last CTrain station; Crowfoot. After only a few weeks of service the station exceeded the estimated usage of 9,000 weekday customers with 11,000 recorded weekday customers in mid-September 2014.

The station has two Park and Ride lots, located on the north and south side of Crowchild Trail. Plans are to incorporate into the development an Art Moderne heritage gas station building and sign from a former restaurant and motel, Eamon’s Bungalow Camp, that once lay along the Old Banff Coach Road.


Route 157 has been extended to increase service coverage to the Royal Vista area of 100 Avenue N.W. Route 58 has been changed to Route 169. Routes 74, 158, 169 and 174 have been revised to service Tuscany Station and will no longer be going to Crowfoot Station.
