The Jun. 21, 2017, Transportation and Transit Committee meeting included:

Calgary Transit Park and Ride Review - Update, TT2017-0547

The Committee approved maintaining a single fee structure for all parking customers. The Committee also approved a strategy that will allow for park and ride plans at redevelopment sites to be coordinated with Transit-Oriented Development applications to optimize parking on site and at displacement locations. This report provided a follow-up on several outstanding items from the Calgary Transit Park and Ride review that was presented to Council last June. Administration explored the availability of surplus Calgary Parking Authority revenues. All revenues are currently spoken for, but the availability of additional surplus revenue will continue to be monitored in future budget cycles. An evaluation of charging out-of-town customers more for reserved parking was completed. The analysis shows that such an action will currently have small financial returns with potential negative impacts to intermunicipal relationships and the customer experience of Calgarians, and is not recommended at this time. However, this should be revisited when demand for reserved parking is higher.

Green Line LRT Alignment and Stations: 160 Avenue N. to Seton, TT2017-0534

The Committee approved the recommend alignment and station locations for the Green Line Light Rail Transit long-term vision. Council directed Administration to report back with a Stage 1 project update no later than Q1 2018. The LRT forms one of the key components of Calgary Transit’s future. The long-term vision for the Green Line LRT is Calgary’s third light rail line linking north central Calgary through the downtown core to the deep southeast. This report closes the visioning and planning phase whereby the alignment and stations are set, the necessary connections to stations have been identified, the Transit-Oriented Development concepts are complete, and the framework for City Shaping implementation is understood.
