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.
To gather some feedback from Transit customers on the lighting upgrades, a short survey will be in market from November 10-17. The upgrades and the survey will be promoted via Calgary Transit’s Twitter feed, the City of Calgary Facebook page and via printed posters in three of the most recently renovated LRT stations (Somerset, Shawnessy and Fish Creek).
At the end of the survey, customers will have the option of entering their email address for the chance to win one of three Calgary Transit passes for the month of December.
We want your feedback – complete a short survey on the lighting upgrade at Calgary.ca/lighting and have the option of entering your email address for a chance to win one of three Calgary Transit passes for the month of December.
