  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Look both ways before crossing the CTrain tracks
  • Only cross the tracks at the designated locations
  • Stand behind the yellow line
  • Hold your kids hands
  • Call 911 or use the Help phones on the platforms or in the CTrain in case of an emergency
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your safety, let any of our transit staff know

Whether you’re a thrill seeker checking out the latest rides, a foodie with a taste for the newest in fried goodies, or catching the rip roaring action of the rodeo, the Calgary Stampede has something for everyone. And we’ll take you there and get you back. Have fun, and please remember to respect everyone around you!

Together, we’re going places.
