Help Name Your LRT: City Kicks off LRT Contest

Edmontonians, stretch your creative muscles and enter to win an iPad by helping the City of Edmonton name current and future LRT lines!

Between June 25 and August 15, the City is asking citizens to suggest names in a brief survey, available online at

The names should fit the following categories:

  • Traits unique toEdmonton
  • Non-commercial landmarks famous toEdmonton
  • Provincial animals

You can enter up to five names in each of the categories. Suggestions will be shortlisted and the final five names announced in early fall.

As the City’s LRT network expands, the lines need names to distinguish them. The names should reflect Edmonton’s identity, be long-lasting and be scalable for the five future LRT lines.

Naming the LRT lines will benefit both transit users and the community as a whole. An expanded LRT network system must be intuitive, safe and convenient for commuters to navigate. As well, a public transit system plays a central role in helping to shape a city’s identity.

This is your opportunity to help shape Edmonton’s image and reputation. It’s your LRT. Help us name it!

    I did some naming. I’m a darned good Edmontonian.

    I didn’t realize they’d be putting two stops so close to me! I live in Riverdale and we’re getting one right by Muttart and one in the Quarters? Sick.

    30 years from now, I mean. It’ll be sick then.
