If there is a new underground section of the C-Train to be built along 8 Avenue S, then will the underground section replace the existing at-grade section along 7 Avenue S or will the two sections operate simultaneously?

Tuscany LRT station unveiled

Quote:
A large crowd gathered at the city’s newest CTrain station on Saturday for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Tuscany LRT platform will serve the residents of Rocky Ridge, Royal Oak and Tuscany, neighbourhoods with a combined population of more than 40,000 people. “It's terrific,” said Mayor Nenshi at the unveiling. “We're anticipating that up to 10,000 people a day will use this particular station.”

Nenshi adds 5,000 Calgarians live within a short walking distance of the new station. Construction on the northwest LRT line extension began in July of 2012. The Tuscany station is situated 2.5 kilometres from the Crowfoot station, which had been the last northwest stop. The extension cost an estimated $123 million. Funding for the project was provided by all levels of government.

LRT service at the Tuscany station will begin on Monday morning. The extension of the northwest line has reduced the need for bus service in the area. Calgary Transit plans to eliminate two buses from its daily routes, a decision expected to save more than $1 million every year.

There are heated or at least enclosed shelters at most stations. Thanks for your concern.

Calgary is a very nice city.

Not very exciting but very likeable, spotlessly clean, nice parks, beautiful location, very safe, and offers a very high quality of life with top notch infrastructure. It is one of Canada's more socially conservative cities but remember that is by Canadian standards which still makes it very liberal by nearly all world standards.

Calgary is a VERY wealthy city with an extremely high wage level and the lowest taxes in the country. Calgary is also a young city both the city itself and it's demographics.

Calgary's transit ridership is quite high and it's LRT system has the highest ridership of any LRT in North America despite the city only having 1.2 million. It is a fairly spread out city but the downtown is quite populace and growing at a phenomenal rate. The rate of car ownership is the highest in the country.

Calgary is the poster child of how a very wealthy, white collar, new city can create a first rate transit service with high ridership and excellent service. Despite Vancouver claiming to be so very green, of Canada's 5 largest metros, it has the lowest per capita transit ridership.

The reason I mentioned Vancouver was because Vancouverites often view Calgary with distain and right it off as a right wing, car centric, spread out cowboy town which is very far from the truth. Torontonians and Montrealers also tend to view it, although not with distain, as a bit of a backwater. It's a reputation the city does not deserve.

In many ways Calgary is a very progressive city and currently has the most progressive, thoughtful, and forward thinking mayor in the country who is a Muslim no less. The CTrain was the first rail transit system in North America to be run 100% by wind power as Calgary Transit owns several wind mills strictly for the CTrain.

In terms of ridership, the CTrain has the highest in NA and on a per-capita basis is light years ahead of any US system.

Like I said Calgary certainly doesn't have the Montreal Bohemian vitality, Toronto's cultural vigour and vibrant cosmopolitan flare, or Vancouver's beautiful ocean and mountain enviorns but it does offer a very high quality of life and in terms of transit, none of those cities could teach Calgary anything.

Feds add financial fuel to future of Calgary’s public transit
Friday, July 24, 2015 1:21PM MDT



Upcoming public transit projects in Calgary received a significant financial boost from the federal government on Friday and the investment means Calgarians should be able to reach all corners of the city by CTrain within the next ten years.

The new Public Transit Fund is intended to provide support for large-scale transit projects to address congestion and reduce travel times and free up funding for other infrastructure items

...

Construction on the LRT line extension is expected to get underway in 2017 and it is anticipated that the project will be completed by 2024.

Council approved funding for The Green Line, which will run from North Pointe in north central Calgary to Seton in the southeast, in January of 2014 and when it is completed it will double the size of the existing rail line

Monday, January 18, 2016



CALGARY Transit unveiled its first Siemens S200 high-floor LRVs on January 15 and says it is on course to introduce the new fleet on the CTrain light rail network this spring

Calgary Transit signed a $C 192m ($US 132m) contract with Siemens in September 2013 for 63 S200s, which will support the introduction of four-car operation on the CTrain network and enable the withdrawal of the oldest U2 vehicles, which date from the opening of the system in 1981

Calgary’s Green Line project progresses
20 Apr 2016



CANADA: The City of Calgary announced on April 18 that it had selected a preferred alignment for the central section of the Green Line light rail project. Technical design, economic analysis and further public consultation is due to take place before a formal recommendation is made to the city council by the end of the year.

The preferred alignment includes a tunnel from 20 Avenue/Centre Street N to the Beltline, with an underground crossing of the Bow River. There would be stops at 16 Avenue N, 9 Avenue N and 2 Avenue SW, as well as an interchange with the existing Red and Blue lines at 7 Avenue SW
