Rendering of a ground-level Green Line station. 

Overview

Phase 1 of Green Line will provide light rail transit (LRT) service over an 18-kilometre route from Shepard Station at 130 Avenue S.E. to Eau Claire Station at 2 Avenue S.W. downtown. It will have 13 stations and connect to Calgary Transit’s Red and Blue LRT lines and three MAX rapid transit routes.

Green Line’s fleet of new modern low floor train cars will improve accessibility and allow stations to integrate easily into the community.

When does construction start?
Main construction of tracks, stations and tunnels will begin in 2024 and is expected to take approximately six years to complete. A series of advance projects to prepare for main construction have been underway since early in this decade with work downtown, in the Beltline and Ogden.

What is the budget for Green Line?
The Green Line has $5.5 billion in funding from The City of Calgary, Province of Alberta and Government of Canada.

How many people are expected to use Green Line?
Green Line will carry riders making 55,000 trips a day in year one of operation and provide direct access to 190,000 jobs in downtown, Quarry Park and southeast industrial areas.
