About the Project

Strategy Phase

The City of Edmonton is studying possible routes for a future LRT route that would connect Strathcona, Downtown, Bonnie Doon and east Edmonton. The study would look at options that could best link riders with key destinations on both sides of the river and to ultimately determine stop locations along the way.

This LRT route will use a low-floor, urban style LRT system, the same as the Valley Line LRT currently being constructed between Mill Woods and Downtown. It is intended to connect with the Valley Line in east Edmonton, as well as downtown.

Low-floor, urban style LRT is different than the high-floor LRT system currently in Edmonton. Low-floor LRT operates with traffic and features stops at sidewalk level, slower speeds, fewer bells and barriers, and a seamless fit into communities.

This LRT route would enhance Edmonton as an extraordinary place to live, work, play and visit by increasing sustainable transportation choices that both support our City’s growth and consider our environmental footprint.

Timeline

Our study began in June 2017 and the recommended concept plan including route selection, stop locations and alignment (where the tracks fit within the route) will be presented to Council for approval before the end of 2018.
