An Edmonton Transit System train arrives at Bay/Enterprise Square Station in downtown Edmonton. The current LRT system is a single 21-kilometre northeast to southwest line. However, a northwest spur line is under construction and a new southeast to west line is in the detailed engineering stages. © Tom Young 2011

To celebrate the launch of Spacing Edmonton, I designed a set of buttons representing each station on our Light Rail Transit line. I made these buttons as my small contribution to the never-ending fight to keep infrastructure funding in existing urban neighbourhoods –as opposed to being used to promote urban sprawl. These buttons are available at tonight’s party and in Spacing’s online store. I hope you will proudly wear them to show that our LRT network is a fundamental part of Edmonton and a viable option for city-wide transportation now and into the future.
