Thanks for the info. Calgary's CTrain rocks and is a true model for other systems around the world.
It says 4-car LRT stations....................................how large are the LRT cars and what will that mean in total station length in metres?

Not really. The platforms are just across each other on the same street from the intersecting street. The map just lists those out as two separate stations.

Calgary LRT is the most successful LRT in North America in terms of ridership, it is also my personal favorite LRT system.

I love the CTrain!
Despite all the propaganda about Calgarians being car crazy wasteland it has an excellent transit system with very high ridership. It serves just 1.07 million yet has ridership of 300,000/day, the highest of any LRT system in NA.
Calgary's CTrain is also the first mass transit system in NA to be powered by wing generated electrical power.

Calgary is proof that a very wealthy car dependent city can become a transit city with very high ridership.

The question to me, however, is to what extent: Safety must trump
