Valley Line LRT

Valley Line Southeast Light Rail Transit (LRT) connects Mill Woods to downtown 102 Street Edmonton with about 13.1 km of light rail transit. This stage includes 11 stops, an elevated station incorporating a transit centre and Park & Ride, and a transfer point to the existing LRT routes at Churchill Connector.

The Valley Line Southeast is different from the Capital/Metro Line high-floor LRT system. The Valley Line Southeast features new, low-floor, urban-styled trains that provide more pedestrian-friendly access at street-level stops. And, in residential and commercial areas, embedded tracks are integrated into the established design and traffic flow of the area.

Pre-construction work began in March 2016 and Valley Line Southeast trains opened for passenger service on November 4, 2023.
