Calgarians for an affordable option

We are taxpayers concerned about the high-cost, high-risk Green Line.

What people are saying


This plan does absolutely nothing to address operational issues – it doesn’t serve where the riders are actually going.

- Frank B -

Concerned Citizen

Why are so many concerned about the current plan? Because it will not produce the benefits everyone expects, and it will cost a fortune.


- Neil McKendrick -

Former transit planner, Calgary Transit

The City hasn’t provided the public with a realistic overview of the Green Line. It’s exposing taxpayers to a burden they can’t afford.
