Southeast Transitway on track for 2017 – get involved!

26 kilometres. 15 stations. Development opportunities. Your new transit route.

The Green Line will be an important piece of Calgary’s transit network, connecting southeast and north-central Calgary with high quality transit service.

The Green Line will be made up of two legs: the North-Central leg will run from North Pointe to downtown, and will connect with the Southeast leg, which will extend to the community of Seton.

Plans for the Southeast Transitway are moving along quickly. The new route will run for 26 kilometres, from the community of Seton to downtown, and will include 15 new transit stations. The line will initially carry only buses, but will be designed so it can be converted to LRT in the future, as funding and land becomes available.

So when can we expect to see this new line? The first stage of construction will involve building a Transitway (aka a roadway that is used exclusively for transit) between 4 Street S.E. and Douglas Glen. Construction will begin in 2017, and is expected to be complete in 2021.

Get involved in the future of public transit in southeast Calgary!

We need your input on route refinement, station design, and transit oriented development.

  1. Transitways for Calgary Transit buses are the way to go. I've seen how efficient transit ways first-hand when I lived and worked in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia!
