Calgary’s newest LRT station opened on August 25, 2014.  Tuscany Station is the latest stop on the Northwest extension leg, or Red Line as it’s called.  Approximately 2.5 km of track were added to extend the leg from Crowfoot Station.  This is great news for the communities of Royal Oak, Rocky Ridge and Tuscany.  Residents in these communities can now commute to the University in under 15 minutes, S.A.I.T. in less than 20 minutes or Downtown in under 30 minutes.
