Winter service changes begin December 25

Four times a year, we look at our bus routes and schedules to figure out what’s working and what could be improved. We consider several factors including feedback from our customers and drivers, ridership levels and changing traffic patterns.

In November, City Council had to make difficult decisions to balance the budget. All City departments were asked to find cost savings, so we looked for ways to make transit service more efficient and submitted a list of potential bus route changes for Council to consider. Ultimately, Council voted to continue investments in Calgary Transit service, which allows us to maintain most transit service levels, and invest in other routes to optimize the transit network. Some bus routes are still being adjusted for efficiencies, and we will continue to monitor customer demand on each route and make adjustments as needed.

The Winter Service Changes below will come into effect on Monday, Dec. 25, 2017.

To stay up to date on changes to the routes you use, use our app or follow us on Twitter.

Schedules will be posted soon.

New Route

Route Description
Route 145
Skyview Ranch / Redstone
In response to increasing demand for bus service in Cityscape, we have made changes to Route 445. The new Route 145 – Skyview Ranch/Redstone will travel along Cityscape Drive in both directions, and will continue to service the same streets and stops in Skyview Ranch and Redstone as Route 445 did.

Bus frequency on weekdays will be every 7-9 minutes during peak hours, and every 25 minutes during off-peak hours. Weekend bus frequency is every 25 minutes. View the route map and schedule.
