Flatline the Green Line!

Flatline the Green Line!

Calgary's Green Line LRT project is a train wreck.

The line will cost $5 billion for Phase 1 alone, and there's no clear plan for how the line will be built given the complex requirements of running it through the downtown core and the over the Bow River.

After more than ten years of planning, re-planning, re-designing, and re-inventing, not a single piece of track has been laid, and then project remains still on the drawing board.

It's time to pursue new transit options that won't bankrupt our city.

It's time to flatline the Green Line.

I, the undersigned, do not support the risky Green Line LRT project. I demand that City Council flatline the Green Line.

    Entire project should be cancelled until after the next election.

    If this city council, excluding Farkas and chiu goes forward with this gigantic boondoggle, they need their heads examined, and should never, ever regain their cushy seats in the next election. This horrific project must be stopped now before another of our hard earned nickels is spent,before incurring this massive debt all for the purpose of leaving a personal legacy led by Nensh. These councillors do not give a hoot for the people of calgary, the costs, the waster of our tax dollars on and on and on….. This is a self interest project for some 12 or more councillors and has nothing to do with a secure,liveable city.

    Calgary Transit is perhaps the most inept, incompetent agglomeration of bureaucrats this city has ever seen. And that’s saying something! Recent news articles have heralded the imminent (2020) arrival of a “Smart Pay” system either by card or phone. Of course this “imminent” arrival has been “coming soon” since at least 2011. Never mind that cities around the world have been using these systems successfully for years, Calgary appears to want to re-invent the wheel, albeit decades late. Of course along with the absence of passenger data, Transit has no real handle on WHERE riders embark and debark, WHEN they do either, and HOW MANY are on board at any given time. Of course, they tell us that “Ridership is up x percent” but in fact, they don’t have a clue! And you want to trust these incompetents (along with the appropriate faces on Council) with AT LEAST $5,500,000,000 for 1/2 the project? NOT ME!

    It’s unconscionable to even consider tue Green Line when there is no certainty when and if transit ridership will ever return to pre Covid 19 levels.

    The outsider who was hired to oversee this project was fired because he did not fit the City Hall culture – he expected civic employees to actually work. This project needs to be contracted out to firms capable of working diligently and accurately cost estimating.
