Moving the Green Line Forward: Segment 1

We are continuing to move this project forward to support Calgary’s economic response and long-term recovery. We want to be ready when Calgary is ready. As The City’s largest job creation project, construction of Green Line Stage 1 will be a critical component of The City’s COVID-19 recovery effort. The Green Line LRT project generates jobs in the short term and long term. The Enabling Works program is keeping people working today and will continue to generate jobs between now and when the main construction for Segment 1 is scheduled to start in 2021.

Construction of Stage 1 of the Green Line will create approximately 20,000 jobs (12,000 direct and 8,000 indirect).

Next Steps:

  • Council will be reviewing our recommended updated alignment at Green Line Committee Meeting on June 1. If approved, it will proceed to Council for approval on June 15.
  • We have completed the evaluation of the responses to the Request for Qualification for Segment 1 and will be announcing the shortlisted proponents by May 2020. Administration is finalizing the Request for Proposal for Segment 1 and will be releasing this to the shortlisted proponents in July 2020.
  • We have completed our evaluations and shortlisted four proponents for the supply of vehicles for the Green Line and the Request for Proposals for the new Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) will be released to the proponents in May 2020.
