The Green Line North LRT (previously referred to as North Central LRT) is the north leg of the Green Line, the next new LRT line in Calgary’s rapid transit network. As outlined in RouteAhead, a 30-year strategic plan for transit in Calgary, the Green Line will eventually run from North Pointe in north central Calgary to Seton in the southeast, with future extensions to the north possible in the longer term.
January 2015 Council Approval
After considering public input and the results of the technical analysis, Council approved the route of the Green Line North LRT on Centre Street North.
Initial engagement for the north leg of the Green Line project lasted over 18 months, and included 13 events for the public to interact and provide feedback to the project team. Over 2,000 face-to-face contacts, and countless emails, informal chats, and articles in community newsletters promoted community involvement, and ownership in the process.
A group of residents and business owners met regularly with the project team to receive information, and provide input on the project. City of Calgary staff from many different areas also provided input on the project to ensure it aligned with long-term goals for The City. More public engagement for the Green Line project is scheduled for 2016. Details can be found on the Green Line project website.
