Vision for Green Line: A transit service that improves mobility in existing and new communities in north and southeast Calgary, connecting people and places, and enhancing the quality of life in the city.
The Green Line is Calgary’s next light rail transit (LRT) line, and one of the highest public transit infrastructure priorities for the city. The Green Line is designed to be both a transit system and a platform for development and City Shaping; it will provide efficient service and connections to destinations throughout the city, and areas where people can live affordably with access to amenities, services and sustainable mobility options.
The Green Line will be an important piece of Calgary's transit network, adding 40 kilometres of track to the existing 59 kilometre LRT system.
End-to-end, it will connect communities between Keystone and Seton to downtown and various other destinations along the way. Once the full alignment is built, the line will carry an estimated 90,000 - 140,000 trips per day.
The Green Line will provide direct connections to the new South Health Campus, new recreation centres, major employment centres, the new $168 million National Music Centre, the new $245 million Central Library, Stampede Park, and several business revitalization zones. The Green Line will also integrate with future rail connection to the Calgary International Airport, which is in the midst of a $2 billion expansion.
