Banff Railway Lands
Area Redevelopment Plan

Revitalizing the Banff Railway Lands will change the way people move through Banff National Park and the Town of Banff townsite.

Informed and sustainable solutions such as the Banff Eco-Transit Hub—including intercept parking and potential aspirational projects such as aerial transit to Norquay’s base and passenger rail to Calgary—can create meaningful change.

Learn more about the broader vision for Banff Eco-Transit Hub, the Banff Railway Lands Area Redevelopment Plan, how you can help inform next steps, and much more about this transformative project.

Premier Danielle Smith has expressed interest in Calgary Airport to Banff Rail. 🚞

Last week, the Premier stated: “We are in the process of putting out a commuter rail and province wide rail strategy to solicit input in how that might look.  There was a proponent from a couple of years back that wanted to build a train from Calgary through to Banff and those may be the kind of things we can partner on. If we can find more ways for people to conveniently get to our mountain parks areas, then we should look at that."

Passenger rail, like the proposed Calgary Airport-Banff Rail project, has incredible benefits for the environment. Learn more from @sierraclub's Rail Transportation Statement.
“Limiting visitation does little to enhance the environment, denies Canadians and Albertans access to their country’s most popular parks, and impacts the economy.”

Banff has a personal vehicle problem, not a visitor problem.
