Getting around

Calgary Transit 
Buses, CTrains and On Demand will be operating on a Sunday level of service on Monday, May 20. Find more details on fares, schedules and service changes at

From Saturday, May 18 until Monday, May 20 all downtown stations will be closed – from Sunalta to Bridgeland/Memorial on the Blue Line, and from Sunnyside to 39 Avenue on the Red Line.

7 Avenue will be closed to both train and bus traffic during this time to allow for required maintenance and utility work, so shuttle buses will replace train service through the downtown area, using standard parallel routing along both 6 Avenue and 9 Avenue. Note: buses will replace Blue Line service between Bridgeland/Memorial and Westbrook stations, and there will be a separate Blue Line shuttle for travel to Sunalta Station.
