2018 Transit Service Review

The City of Calgary is investing in new and improved Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and the routes that link into it. Together, the new BRT routes and supporting routes will significantly shape the way the transit network operates in many communities.

Calgary Transit is reviewing existing bus services to develop a more effective and efficient bus network in Calgary. The goal of this review is to increase connectivity, reliability and efficiency and ensure customers can get to where they need to go. The review will be based on the following new BRT routes:

  • 17 Avenue S. E. BRT
  • North Crosstown BRT
  • South Crosstown BRT

What Does This Mean to You?

The changed or new bus routes mean better connections and convenience for transit riders. These routes fill important gaps from the east side to the west side of the City and better connect riders to major destinations.

With the North and South Crosstown and 17 Avenue S.E. BRTs starting service this fall, there will be dozens of revisions to existing bus routes across the City that connect to them.

The City Needs Your Input.

Starting in April, we are collecting input from riders on the proposed revisions. We want to know what you like about these changes, what you think could be improved and any additional information you feel is important for Calgary Transit to consider.

We Need You To Tell Us:
