How would you improve transportation in the Northwest Hub?

UToday HomeJune 18, 2013

Streetcars, rapid trains and urban gondolas are a few of the unique suggestions being offered as ideas for improving transit in the Northwest Hub — the city’s second largest employment area that includes the University of Calgary, Alberta Children’s Hospital, Foothills Medical Centre and Market Mall shopping district.

To gather feedback, the University of Calgary is partnering with Calgary Transit on a month-long transit study that launches city-wide today, which provides an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to share their views.

The study will look at potential system upgrades in the Northwest Hub, and feedback shared by University of Calgary students, faculty and staff will help shape decisions aimed at improving transit service in the area. Future system improvements will have a positive effect on commute times for transit users and anyone travelling to and from the University of Calgary.

The survey has been designed to engage all Calgarians — both current and potential transit users — to better understand transit priorities. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and will remain open for one month.
