Future stages

The full vision of Green Line extends from Seton to 160 Avenue N. It will serve 27 communities, adding 29 new LRT stations to the network.

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

Phase 1 of the Green Line LRT, from Shepard to Eau Claire, builds the first 18 km core of the 46 km full vision.  It will provide connections to the existing Red and Blue LRT lines and three MAX rapid bus routes. Calgarians will have fast, frequent and reliable transit service to communities, employment hubs, tourist destinations and essential services.

The Green Line LRT will play an important role in shaping the City’s future. It is both a transit system and a platform for long-term city building. This will encourage redevelopment and investment opportunities in Calgary businesses and communities.

  • Seton
  • Hospital
  • Auburn Bay/Mahogany

Phase 2

Phase 2 – Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N

In June 2020 City Council approved the Stage 1 alignment from Shepard to 16 Avenue N. Following a review of Stage 1 of the project by the provincial government, the Green Line Board announced a revised procurement strategy to build the Green Line in two phases:

  • Phase 1: Shepard to Eau Claire
  • Phase 2: Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N 

A decision on building Phase 2 has not been made yet. The Green Line Board will make this decision once more is known about the costs and risks for completing Phase 1.

Expanding south and north

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.
