The City of Calgary has been actively working to upgrade the lighting infrastructure and design at several LRT stations across the city (Somerset, Shawnessy, Fish Creek, Anderson, Brentwood, Franklin, Dalhousie, Heritage and Southland).
By swapping out the old high-pressure sodium lamps with energy-efficient LED lamps, not only are we investing in a more sustainable, cost-efficient lighting source, we’re also creating a brighter, safer transit environment.

This upgrade pilot project was made possible by Infrastructure & Information Services’ (IIS) Sustainable Buildings Partnership Program.
The Sustainable Buildings Partnership Program (SBPP) was developed to enable City business units to better measure performance, upgrade building systems, and evaluate sustainable building technologies for existing City facilities.
