Once fully built, the Green Line LRT will add 46 km of LRT track to the existing 59 km LRT system. A public transit network that connects Calgary’s major employment hubs, residential areas and essential services will secure Calgary as the City of choice in Canada for the business, industry, entrepreneurs and talent and assist Calgary in recovering from the economic downturn with high levels of economic productivity.
The Green Line LRT is designed to be both a transit system and a platform for future city building opportunities. It encourages redevelopment and investment in Calgary businesses and communities like Inglewood, Ramsay, Ogden, Shepard and in the downtown.
The Green Line LRT supports long-term City of Calgary planning initiatives including:
"Green Line is a city-shaping transit service that improves mobility in communities in north and southeast Calgary, connecting people and places, and enhancing the quality of life in the city." - Green Line Vision (2020)
Our planning approach is a holistic look at short-term and long-term goals for our city, communities and citizens.
Stations and station entrances will be designed to integrate seamlessly into surrounding environments.
