The Green Line is The City of Calgary’s next light rail transit (LRT) line and largest infrastructure investment in our city’s history. With $4.9 billion in commitments from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and City of Calgary, the approved Stage 1 alignment from Shepard to 16 Avenue N is ready for construction. Stage 1 will be built in two phases:
Phase 1 – Shepard to Eau Claire
Phase 2 – Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N
Full vision – Seton to 160 Avenue N
Due to the size and cost of the full project, the Green Line LRT will be built in stages 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.
