“We have gone back and forth since the election on how best to serve the transit users in Calgary and throughout the Southeast. I am encouraged by Administration’s efforts in working towards a plan to create the SETWAY, linking the new South Calgary Health Centre to the core of the city.”
City of Calgary’s Administration will present at today’s Land Use Planning & Transportation (LUPT) Committee on the progress, and next steps, for the future Southeast TransitWay (SETWAY).
Alderman Shane Keating, who is spearheading the campaign to create a dedicated transit link from the new South Calgary Health Centre to downtown Calgary, will be proposing an amendment at today’s meeting. The amendment will recommend that Administration investigate the possibility of refurbishing the current fleet of LRT vehicles, extending their lifecycle, while reinvesting the savings into furthering the SETWAY.
