The 17 Avenue SE Bus Rapid Transit project will provide efficient, reliable transit from southeast Calgary to downtown. We’re starting construction on phase one between 28 Street S.E. and Hubalta Road in 2017, and we’ll be out talking with residents about phase two that will extend the BRT to Inglewood along 17 Avenue S.E. to 9 Avenue S.E.
City Council approved a Transportation Planning Study for 17 Avenue S.E. between Downtown and Stoney Trail East in July 2010 and a complementary land use concept for the 17 Avenue S.E. corridor. The City is now proceeding with the planning and design for Bus Rapid Transit that will connect riders from the southeast to downtown.
A study and preliminary design for a future phase of the project, along 17 Avenue S.E. from Hubalta Road to 70 Street S.E. is now complete.
