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, the potential for aerial transit to Norquay’s base, and passenger rail—can create meaningful change. Learn more about the broader vision for Banff Eco-Transit Hub, the upcoming Banff Railway Lands Area Redevelopment Plan, how you can help inform next steps, and more.

vehicle management in Banff National Park


Zermatt is on pace to be the first mountain destination in the world to be net-zero. Jan and Adam Waterous spoke with the town’s Mayor, Romy Biner-Hauser, about Zermatt's car-free, e-transit, eco-village experience. Listen here:
Our area redevelopment plan for the Banff Railway Lands envisions creating a world class arrival centre that will change the way people move through Banff National Park and the Banff townsite. The plan includes passenger rail service from Calgary International Airport, a shuttle system to various points of interest throughout the park and more than 1,000 intercept parking stalls. 

The draft plan also envisions restaurants, retail shops, an amphitheatre for concerts and special events, and the potential for aerial transit to Norquay’s base.

If approved, the project will help the Town of Banff become more pedestrian friendly and support the Banff National Park Net Zero 2035 Initiative.

We are excited to announce that high frequency passenger rail service between Calgary and Banff is one step closer to reality after Invest Alberta, Alberta Transportation and the Canada Infrastructure Bank signed a memorandum of understanding to advance the project.

The Canada Infrastructure Bank has also said it will consider financing half of the $1 billion project, with the remaining funding coming from both public and private partners.

The project has the potential to be the first airport-to-mountain community transit solution of its kind in North America and may even be the first hydrogen train on the continent.
If approved, the project would create an innovative, environmentally friendly public transit option and help the Town of Banff become more pedestrian friendly and support the Banff National Park Net Zero 2035 Initiative.
