The system is comprised of two lines known as route 201 and 202. The 201 line has a North-South orientation reaching from Somerset/Bridlewood in the South to Dalhousie in the North. The 202 line is East-West oriented starting at Whitehorn and ending at 10 St. S.W. (downtown).

The Downtown area is known as a free fare zone in which it is free to ride the LRT, however a fare must be paid if you are traveling outside the downtown area.

Rush hour service has a 5 minute frequency and off-peak service is reduced to 15 minute service.

The fare system is operated as a proof of payment system where tickets are purchased before boarding the CTrain from ticket vending machines or fare vendors. Other valid fare types include transfers from Calgary Transit buses, and passes. Customers on the CTrain or restricted platforms may be checked for valid fare.

Maintenance is done at the Anderson Road complex which also has a storage capacity of 55 LRVs. The remaining LRVs are stored at the Haysboro storage facility.
