      We are a long, long way away from the point Calgary is where their downtown density and real estate availability mean astronomical parking rates. Didn't Impark drop their downtown fees the same month the Southgate and Century Park stations opened?

      As far as the downtown is concerned, it's speed.

        Galgary is where they are at mostly because they set a cap on the number of parking spots in the core and stuck to that cap.

        They said what they meant and meant what they said.

          I'm done. I was just saying that the more logical split would be at South Campus, not Health Sciences. This would essentially kill any future ponderings of an 87th Ave line.
