Southwest Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

The Southwest BRT project is one of four additions to The City's primary transit network. The project includes new BRT stations along the length of the route, and construction of new bus-only travel lanes on 14 Street W between Southland Drive and 75 Avenue S.W. Buses will run in mixed traffic along the rest of the route, except on portions of Glenmore Trail and Crowchild Trail, where buses will be able to use the shoulder lanes to bypass traffic in rush hour.

The BRT project route​ will run from Downtown Calgary to Woodbine, and will provide direct connections to major destinations that are currently underserviced by transit, such as Southland Leisure Centre, Glenmore Landing, Heritage Park, Rockyview Hospital, Mount Royal University, Lincoln Park, Currie Barracks, and Marda Loop.

 

Project updates

April 20, 2018

We have adjusted the signal timing at the 14 Street/90 Avenue intersection for eastbound traffic turning onto 14 Street S.W. Drivers will have more green time when turning left onto northbound 14 Street S.W. during rush hour. Crews have also painted additional lane markings at the intersection. We will keep monitoring this intersection and make adjustments as needed.

Project budget

There have been a number of budget approvals related to the BRT program, with funding coming from a number of sources including the provincial and federal governments. The total BRT program budget and associated projects approved by Council is $304 million, and includes the four BRT routes, as well as intersection improvements and noise walls which will be built as a part of the Southwest BRT.

For a full break down of the BRT program budget see the project background page.
