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 more.

Thank you to everyone who found time to enjoy the skating rinks at the Banff Train Station - and the team that kept the ice in perfect condition. Because conditions have changed, both rinks are closed for the season. But don't forget that snow conditions are ideal at Norquay!
Its a beautiful day for a skate down at the train station. Get it while its good!

The potential for hydrogen-fueled mass transit is significant. Along with being a low-emission energy source, Alberta has considerable capacity to produce hydrogen. With Canadian Pacific currently testing hydrogen-powered locomotives, the future of clean-running trains looks bright.

Congratulations to Roam Public Transit for this amazing accomplishment. Mass transit to, from and within our mountain parks significantly reduces visitor impact on environmentally sensitive places. 

By advancing intercept parking opportunities,  encouraging multi-modal usage, and providing transportation options that do not require private vehicles,  we can further address many of the challenges our parks are facing while ensuring a sustainable future for Banff.

Saturday’s Skijoring is an excellant example of visitors and the community enjoying a closed to traffic Banff Avenue - even in -20 Celsius. What an icnredible event. A permanent Banff Pedestrian Zone would transform Banff Avenue to a year-round resident and visitor gathering spot.
