About the Project

Capital Line was Edmonton’s first LRT. Planning started in 1962 and service started in time for the 1978 Commonwealth Games. It ran between Belvedere Station to Central Station. Between 1981 and 2006 six more stations opened up expanding the LRT line in the Northeast and to the University area. Progress on the South portion of the Capital Line has occurred in stages. Preliminary Engineering from Century Park to Ellerslie Road was completed in 2010.
