Community integration

Wherever possible, Green Line LRT stations will be integrated with nearby developments and public spaces.

This creates a seamless and comfortable experience for transit riders and the community.

This could look like:

  • Transit stations leading into plaza areas, gardens or gathering spaces
  • Entrances to underground stations incorporated into existing buildings
  • Development beside and above transit stations with direct connections
  • Transit hubs for making connections

Benefits of station integration include:

  • Easy transfers between LRT and other modes of transportation (buses, bicycles, vehicles, etc.)
  • Redevelop older communities to upgrade existing public spaces
  • Vibrant cultural, social and commercial activities
  • Minimize impacts to existing residential and commercial properties
  • Increase customer traffic for retail and other tenants
  • Help attract or retain business tenants
  • Support future Transit Oriented Development (TOD) potential
  • Lower costs for land acquisition and construction

Underground station access

For the Green Line downtown stations we’re exploring station integration options with developers and landowners. We will look at how underground station platforms and access can be part of existing and future developments. For example, the underground station at Eau Claire will be part of the Eau Claire Market redevelopment site.

Westbrook Station

Westbrook Station on Calgary Transit’s Blue Line is an example of station integration. The underground LRT station is below an office building, the Nicholls Family Library and a cafe.
