We’ve made historic investments in public transit systems across the country to improve commute times, reduce air pollution, and create well-paying middle class jobs. Now, our Liberal government is investing $1.5 billion in the Calgary Green Line LRT, the largest-ever federal infrastructure investment in Alberta.
Running north to south, it will go through Inglewood, Victoria Park, East Village and downtown. End-to-end, it will connect communities between Keystone and Seton to downtown, including the Blue and Red Line, and various other destinations along the way with fast, efficient and reliable transit service.
The full vision for the Green Line LRT will include a 46-kilometer route from 160 Avenue N to Seton, and 28 stations.
Construction on the first 20 kilometers is anticipated to begin in 2020, and will extend from 16 Avenue N (Crescent Heights) to 126 Avenue SE (Shepard). This first stage of construction is expected to be complete by 2026. Once the first stage is complete, the line will be expanded incrementally to the north and southeast.
