Starting February 22, an online tool will be available for Calgarians to provide input to the City of Calgary in regards to the last phase of design for the Southwest BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) Project.
In addition to the online tool, the City will be gathering feedback at a facilitated session in March with area community associations, institutions and citizen groups as well.
The City is looking for input on the following:
- Pedestrian overpass at 90 Avenue S.W.
- Construction staging and phasing
- Transit station connections
Once we’ve heard from the Calgarians living and working near the future route, as well the Calgarians who may someday make use of the city’s BRT network, we will compile and analyze all feedback, which will help inform the final design for the Southwest BRT project. Calgarians input along with technical and engineering considerations will inform the final design for the SWBRT. The City will post a “What We Heard” report which will be made available online in April. [City of Calgary]
Background and project information:
The Southwest BRT is one of four additions to Calgary's transit network, which will fill gaps in the existing network and provide transportation to major destinations in the city. The Southwest BRT includes new BRT stations along the route, and construction of bus-only travel lanes on 14 Street West. Buses will also run in mixed traffic for the rest of the route, except for parts of Glenmore Trail and Crowchild Trail where buses will have shoulder lanes to bypass rush hour traffic.
