Via City of Calgary
As part of the Green Line LRT project, The City conducted the North Central Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) functional planning study from 2020 to 2021, resulting in recommendations for short-, medium-, and long-term improvements. The proposed North Central BRT improvements will link the investments that The City is making with Green Line to provide improved connections to north central communities and support the future transition to LRT along the corridor, which runs from Downtown along Centre Street up to Harvest Hills Boulevard N.E., and continues through to 160 Avenue N.E.
These improvements will:
- provide shorter transit travel times
- increase reliability
- enhance comfort and convenience
- improve accessibility
- improve walking and wheeling amenities
With Green Line Committee approval of the study recommendations in May 2021, work on implementing the recommendations will begin to move forward in 2022.
