The Green Line is a long-term investment in Calgary's future.
The city of Calgary is regarded as one of North America’s best places to live, visit and do business. It is one of Canada’s largest cultural and economic centres and it has undergone significant population and employment growth over the previous decades and the population is forecast to double by 2076. Investment in infrastructure is essential to maintaining a high quality of life, a prosperous and competitive economic advantage and a sustainable environment.
Phase 1 of the Green Line LRT Project is a key infrastructure investment to meet this need. It will expand mobility choices to improve travel times and journey reliability by connecting the southeast and downtown to meet the needs of the City’s present and future population and will build the core of the project, allowing for easier incremental expansion of the LRT north and south and providing best value for tax dollars.
