North Central Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) improvements

Upgrades to the North Central BRT corridor began in Spring 2024.

While planning continues to bring future Green Line LRT service to the north, immediate improvements to the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor on Centre Street are underway. This work is partially funded by Green Line and is part of the progression towards LRT service in north central Calgary.

Construction will take place at various points on Centre Street from Country Hills Boulevard to 28 Avenue North. As a start, it will include the upgrade of existing Route 301 BRT stops to MAX standards—including heated shelters, larger platforms and improved lighting, among other upgrades.

Work began in late April 2024 and will continue until December 2024, weather permitting. Construction will resume in spring 2025 and is targeted for completion in summer 2025.

Start Date: April 2024
Completion Date: Summer 2025
