Description

The Calgary-Edmonton Intercity Passenger Rail Study consisted of 3 phases: Phase I consisted of five sub-studies aimed at identifying a role for passenger rail. Consultants Loram International Ltd. concluded that a high-speed rail service potentially could be useful but that additional analyses were required. Phase II was the result: four sub-studies on modal demand, route assessment, operational costs, and financial matters. Phase III was aimed at refining the earlier results, so that a decision could be made whether or not to proceed with design, engineering and protection of right-of-way, should the government so decide. Included were studies of the route, downtown access, facilities, rolling stock, and economic and financial aspects. This presentation provides the results of all work completed to date.
