The Green Line is The City of Calgary’s next light rail transit (LRT) line and largest infrastructure investment in our city’s history. Construction of Phase 1 begins in 2024 and is expected to take six years to build.
Phase 1 - Shepard to Eau Claire
Phase 1 of the Green Line spans 18 kilometers from Shepard Station at 130 Ave S.E. to Eau Claire at the north end of downtown (view map). With 13 stations, it provides connections to the Red and Blue LRT lines and three MAX rapid bus routes.
The Green Line will introduce modern low-floor trains to Calgary that improve accessibility and allow for station designs that integrate easily into the community. Upon opening, the Green Line is expected to serve up to 55,000 daily riders and attract up to 18,000 new transit customers.
Due to the size and cost of the full project, the Green Line LRT will be built in phases as funding becomes available. The full vision for the Green Line is to connect communities between Seton and 160 Avenue N. It will be an important piece of Calgary's rapid transit network, adding 29 stations and 46 km of track to the existing LRT system.
The full Green Line will connect to key destinations like the South Health Campus and will integrate with a future rail connection to the Calgary International Airport.
Connecting and shaping our city
The Green Line strategically connects residential areas, employment hubs and essential services, benefiting all Calgarians who live and work across the city. It will provide fast, frequent, and reliable service, and connections to hundreds of key destinations throughout the city.
It will also play an important role in shaping the City’s future. Green Line LRT is both a transit system and a platform for long-term city building. This will encourage redevelopment and investment opportunities in Calgary businesses and communities.
