The Urbos 100 Light Rail Vehicle will be used on the Green Line. 

Introducing the Urbos 100

The Green Line’s Urbos 100 Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) mark an exciting new era for Calgary’s transit system. They are the first low floor vehicles to be used in Calgary, and the first time an Urbos 100 model will be used in Canada.

Manufacturing of the new LRVs will begin in 2025 and the vehicles are expected to start arriving in Calgary in 2027.

Step inside Green Line's LRV mock-up! This life-size model is 12 metres long, which represents just over a quarter of one vehicle length.

Train first, infrastructure second

Green Line was designed in a way that is different from many other Light Rail Transit (LRT) projects: we designed the trains first and are building the rest of the system to fit the trains. This ensures that all the infrastructure, including tracks, stations, tunnels and bridges, is built around the specifications of this train.

Procuring the trains first reduces risk to the overall project. The LRV design was completed in September 2023, in advance of finalizing the main infrastructure design. This reduces uncertainty around how the train interfaces with the infrastructure, as the LRV design is used to inform many aspects of the system.  

2-car trains

Green Line will operate 2-car trains, which are approximately equal in length and passenger capacity to 3.3 vehicles that are currently used on Red and Blue lines.
