Green Line South East Transitway March Workshops

The Green Line Southeast Transitway, a dedicated road that will be used exclusively for public transit, is the newest planned addition to Calgary’s transit network. We are hosting workshops in March to hear your opinions about how the Transitway can be best placed in our communities.

Construction on the first 10 kilometres of the Green Line Southeast Transitway is slated to begin in 2017. The Transitway will eventually run for 26 kilometres, from 4 Street downtown to the community of Seton.

Participants for March Workshops Needed

The workshops taking place from March 10-12 will present possible alternate routes and discuss the opportunities, benefits and impacts of the Transitway to each community. This is your opportunity to have a sit-down discussion with the project team, discuss the route options, ask questions and identify issues.

There are three specific areas where The City is looking at making route refinements, including 11 Street SE, Ogden Road, and 24 Street SE.

Glenmore Inn – 2720 Glenmore Tr SE
Tuesday, March 10.
Workshop runs from 6:30-9 p.m.
Cranston Century Hall – 11 Cranarch Rd SE
Wednesday, March 11.
Workshop runs from 6:30-9 p.m.
Venue 1008 – Inglewood 1008, 14th St SE Access from 14th St, off 9 Ave
Thursday, March 12

The feedback collected at the sessions will be one of the factors used to help inform the recommendations for the final Green Line SE route.

Recap of January Public Information Sessions

In January, we hosted three Public Information Sessions to reintroducing the Green Line Southeast Transitway project. Over 600 people attended the sessions and overall, public reception was positive. Enthusiasm was strong for the project to move forward and citizens expressed a distinct desire for low-profile stations that could be functional in Calgary’s ever-changing weather. Many attendees also expressed that route accessibility for surrounding communities was a top priority.
