Why are these stations being renovated and how is it funded?

Rundle and Marlborough – These are two of the busiest and oldest stations on our system. They opened in 1985 and were due for life cycle upgrades. Funding for these renovations was primarily obtained through grants from the Provincial government and City funding.

Anderson, University, SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee, 39 Avenue, Zoo and Barlow/Max Bell – In 2016 we received funding from the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund to complete CTrain station upgrades. These six stations were chosen for renovations based on their need for lifecycle upgrades.
