Join us to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Light Rail Transit (LRT) service in Edmonton.

Come visit the D.L. MacDonald Garage to see behind the scenes of how our LRT operates. This is a free, informative and interactive event that is fun for the whole family.

Learn how the trains work, see how they are repaired and take a look at where they go overnight. Our LRT staff are looking forward to showing you around and answering your LRT questions. For the history buffs, we will have displays set up so you can learn more about the LRT’s past and its future in our city. Transit Peace Officers will also be there to talk to you about how they keep our transit system safe.
