The Green Line is Calgary's next light rail transit (LRT) line.

It is also the largest infrastructure investment in our city’s history. It comes with $4.9 billion in commitments from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and City of Calgary.

Stage 1 of the Green Line LRT is important to expanding Calgary’s rapid transit network. It will provide seamless connections with the existing Red and Blue LRT lines and four MAX BRT routes. Calgarians will have fast, frequent and reliable transit service to communities, employment hubs, tourist destinations and essential services. Stage 1 builds the first 20 km core of the 46 km full vision of the Green Line LRT.

The Green Line LRT will play an important role in shaping the City’s future. It is both a transit system and a platform for long-term city building. This will encourage redevelopment and investment opportunities in Calgary businesses and communities.

Indigenous land acknowledgement

The Calgary area, where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet, is a place of confluence where the sharing of ideas and opportunities naturally come together. Indigenous peoples have their own names for this area that have been in use long before Scottish settlers named this place Calgary. The Métis call the Calgary area Otos-kwunee. In the Blackfoot language, they call this place, Moh-kins-tsis. The Stoney Nakoda Nation refer to the Calgary area as Wicispa Oyade and the people of the Tsuut’ina nation call this area Guts-ists-i.

We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that we are gathered on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. This includes: the Blackfoot Confederacy, made up of the Siksika (Seeg-see-kah), Piikani (Pee-gah-nee), and Kainai (G-ai-nah) First Nations; the Îethka Nakoda Wîcastabi6 First Nations, comprised of the Chiniki (Chin-ick-ee), Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations; and the Tsuut’ina (Soot-tenna) First Nation. The city of Calgary is also homeland to the historic Northwest Métis and to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. 

We acknowledge all Indigenous urban Calgarians who have made Calgary their home.
