61 Avenue Bridge

The shuttle bus service that connects Chinook LRT Station and Chinook Centre is being retired. The last day of service for Route 506 is Sunday, February 11, 2018.

The shuttle is co-funded by Calgary Transit and Chinook Centre, and with the opening of the new 61 Avenue S.W. bridge the shuttle service will be discontinued.

The bridge provides a safe and convenient connection across Macleod Trail. It’s enclosed, heated and fully accessible with escalators and elevators, making the short walk between the mall and the LRT station (5-10 minutes) comfortable and easy.

Additionally, the 61 Avenue S.W. Greenway Corridor project is complete, which improved the walkway between Chinook LRT Station and Chinook Centre. The wider sidewalks, improved lighting and landscaping make the walk enjoyable and safe.
