Future stages

Future stages

Due to the size and cost of the full project, the Green Line LRT will be built in stages as funding becomes available. 

The Green Line will expand Calgary’s rapid transit network, providing seamless connections to the Red and Blue LRT Lines, and the four MAX BRT routes.

The full vision of Green Line (Seton to 160 Avenue N):

  • Serves 27 communities 
  • A total of 29 new LRT stations
  • 250,000 transit riders living within 10 minutes of a station
  • Around 200,000-240,000 trips per day

Stations from south to north include:

  • Seton
  • Hospital
  • Auburn Bay/Mahogany
  • McKenzie Towne
  • Prestwick
  • Shepard
  • Douglas Glen
  • Quarry Park
  • South Hill
  • Ogden
  • Lynnwood/Millican
  • Highfield
  • 26 Avenue S.E.
  • Ramsay/Inglewood

Expanding south to Seton

The southeast area of the city has seen significant population growth and is expected to continue developing quickly. Many communities have been built with the LRT in mind, with dedicated lands for the track, station areas, Park and Rides and high density developments. 

Expanding north to 160 Avenue N.

The Green Line will enhance an already bustling area Between 16 Avenue N. and Beddington. It will improve transit service in established communities and connect people to many shops and services.

Beyond 96 Avenue N., the Green Line will serve the future Aurora Business Park, the busy North Pointe community hub, and the future area of Keystone Hills (north of the Ring Road, where new communities have started development).

New stations to the north will include:

Future connections

Airport connection

There are plans for a Green Line connection to the Calgary International Airport. An LRT extension can be built to the airport terminal from 96 Avenue N. station. This will also connect to the Blue Line at 88 Avenue N.E.


South Health Campus (SHC) Hospital

SHC employs about 2,800 people who care for over 200,000 patients. It is expected to grow to 5,100 employees by 2076. Green Line will help get employees, patients and visitors to the hospital. 

Aurora Business Park

The Aurora Business Park land development will bring new business and job opportunities to northeast Calgary. The vision for the area is to become a business campus environment with: 

  • Office 
  • Retail 
  • Hotel 
  • Laboratory/research 
  • Packaging 
  • Limited light industrial facilities

Regional transit connections

  • Intercity Express (ICE) will connect people in Airdrie to the Green Line in the north.
  • On-it Regional Transit Service will connect people in Cochrane, Banff, Canmore, Okotoks, High River, Black Diamond and Turner Valley to Green Line stations.
  • Long term plans for high-speed rail service to Banff, Canmore, Edmonton, Okotoks and High River will be able to connect with Green Line.
