The Green Line light rail transit system will add 28 stations and 46 kilometres of track to Calgary’s existing LRT system. The line will run from 16th Avenue north to 126 Avenue SE, with an underground tunnel for the downtown portion of the system. The initial plans were for the Green Line to be constructed as a bus-only transitway, but was later converted to LRT as funding became available.

While procurement for Stage 1 of the Green Line LRT continues, the City of Calgary is moving forward with enabling works construction, supported by $250 million in combined provincial and federal funding.

The current project schedule calls for construction to begin in 2020, with a completion date of 2026.
