Connecting Calgarians

Green Line will connect Calgarians from southeast Calgary to downtown.

Expanding the Rapid Transit Network

Phase 1 of the Green Line LRT from Shepard to Eau Claire is the largest infrastructure investment in Calgary's history. It will connect communities from the southeast to downtown and into the broader transit network including the Red and Blue LRT lines and multiple Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lines.

The map shows the Green Line and planned future expansions of Calgary’s Rapid Transit Network, including Light Rail Transit (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and MAX BRT lines. 

  • Planned extensions to the LRT system are shown with red, blue and green dashed lines.
  • Plans for future rapid transit projects are shown in grey dashed lines.
