In August, Councillor Farrell travelled to Vancouver, Seattle and Portland with two of her Council Colleagues and select City staff. The purpose of this trip was to learn about the recent experiences of these cities in building LRT lines for trains using low-floor technology, the same technology chosen for the Green Line. Councillor Farrell presented what she learned at two separate sessions in late 2015. To view a video of her presentation, please visit our webpage or click on the image below.

As Calgary continues to grow, the way Calgarians move about the city will change. According to the City's transportation plan RouteAhead, significant expansions to our transit network are required. The proposed Green Line LRT is the next big project. It will serve the central part of the city, travelling from North Pointe in the north all the way to Seton in the south.
in 2016, Council will be making critical decisions on key aspects of the largest capital project in the Calgary's history, an estimated cost of $5 billion. Decisions on alignment and how the train passes through the inner-city, below or above-ground, will determine the overall cost of the project, how well it serves the thousands of Calgarians and how it integrates with neighbouring communities. We also must examine how the Green Line will maximize planning and development opportunities that will benefit Calgarians for generations to come.
