Three open houses planned for North-Central LRT study

Three North Central LRT route options under review.
The City of Calgary is working to improve transportation choices that will connect Calgarians and their communities in the north central area. As part of this commitment, and to meet Council’s direction from 2012, The City is beginning a study to determine where the future north-central leg of the LRT (NC LRT) should go and the best transit service for the community. Specifically, the study will determine:

  • A route for NC LRT (Centre Street N., Edmonton Trail, or Nose Creek) 
  • Station locations and amenities (e.g. bus terminals, park and ride lots, and opportunities for transit-oriented development)
  • LRT vehicle type and right-of-way concepts (elevated, in-street, separated right-of-way, etc.)
  • Possible bus and rapid transit network connections (including the future southeast LRT)
  • Pedestrian and cyclist needs (to, along and across the LRT route)
  • Ridership and traffic projections 
  • Projected high level costs and land implications

Have your say and learn more about the NC LRT study. Join us at one of three Open Houses:
