How It Started

Strategy Phase

December 2008: Council Approved New Criteria

City Council approved a new criteria for LRT Route Planning and Evaluation. This criteria reflected a shift in the City’s strategic planning direction, as reflected in The Way We Move and The Way We Grow.

For LRT and Transit investments, the original goal was to minimize travel times and increase ridership, but the new focus was finding a balance of travel time and shaping land use.

October 2008: LRT Network Plan

At this time, planning studies were underway for a West LRT line. However, the change in policy direction led to a decision to re-evaluate potential west routes.

In 2009, the City also completed a long-term study to define the future size, scale and operation of Edmonton’s LRT system. The Network Plan calls for the potential development of five LRT lines across the City.

For lines that don’t physically connect into the existing system, such as the Valley Line, the Network Plan called for the development of Urban LRT. This means the system should have smaller, more frequent stops that are better connected to the surrounding community.

The City is committed to involving the people affected by the decisions it makes. We seek diverse opinions, experiences and information so that a wide spectrum of information is available to decision makers.

Building a new LRT line is a significant infrastructure project that can take several years of planning, engineering and public engagement before construction can begin.
The City of Edmonton's Light Rail Transit (LRT) Projects include six routes to various parts of the city.
