A time-lapse ride on the LRT train (C-Train) through the city, 35.7 kilometers in 5 minutes. C-Train is the light rail transit (LRT) system in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It has been in operation since May 25, 1981. The South line opened on May 25, 1981 and was extended during several phases over the past 23 years. The system initially used Siemens-Duewag U2 LRVs (originally designed for German metros, and used by Edmonton's earlier LRT and the U-Bahn, a light rail system in Frankfurt), which constituted the entire fleet until mid-July 2001, when the first Siemens SD-160 cars were delivered. There are now seventy-two SD-160s and eighty U2s in service. Calgary is one of only four cities in the world that use the Siemens-Duewag U2, the other cities are Edmonton, San Diego and Frankfurt. In the first quarter of 2010, the C-Train system had an average of 278,100 revenue riders per weekday, the second busiest light rail system in North America behind the Monterrey Metro. A very successful LRT operation. Special thanks to Calgary Transit for the opportunity to create this video.
