46 km of additional LRT corridor
28 new stations added to the existing LRT system
Nearly 40 million passengers served annually by the new line
Exploration of non-fare funding opportunities
- The City of Calgary’s existing LRT infrastructure will be expanded tremendously with the addition of the Green Line LRT.
- The new extension is key to the city’s continued growth and will connect northern and southern suburbs to the city’s downtown center.
- The Green Line project team had an objective to identify revenue sources that would help offset capital costs.
- An analysis was needed to determine how the private sector could be leveraged to create funding opportunities for the City of Calgary.
- Development partnerships and incentives: land dispositions, partnerships with developers, and non-monetary development incentives
- Station retail: commercial concessions adjacent to transit stations
- Development levies, charges, and assessments: contributions from new development will fund new capital facilities needed to accommodate growth
- Greater mobility from north to south within the Metro Calgary area
- Pedestrian friendly, accessible, and environmentally sustainable transit
- 28 new stations added to the existing LRT system
