How Might We

... increase customer’s feelings of safety on the LRT in Calgary?

Description

In Calgary, many people rely on transit as their primary mode of transportation. Calgary’s sprawl requires its citizens to cover great distances to reach their place of employment and access services.

Unfortunately, many people do not feel safe when using Calgary’s LRT system. This may prevent them from using the system and consequently create a barrier to the things they need. This can result in unequal access to the city for those who rely on transit compared to those with the ability to choose other modes of personal transportation.

A multitude of factors, from the individual to the systemic level, perpetuate this problem. This must be addressed to create equal access to the city for all Calgarians.
