About us

The Halifax Light Rail Alliance (HaLRA) aims to promote public awareness and discussion of higher-order modes of public transit in Halifax. We are a citizens' group independent of any corporate or political influence. We advocate a tripartite strategy of light rail, transit-oriented development, and a greenbelt as a holistic mode of sustainable urban growth.

The concept behind this website originated from this poster a HaLRA member produced at the Dalhousie University School of Planning. The following concept has been simplified to comprise only one line that interchanges with itself, thus enabling trains to run at higher frequencies.
