BRT Bus riding along 7 Avenue

We are working to create and improve transportation options for Calgarians. One of those options is the new BRT network.  

Bus Rapid Transit (or BRT) is a fast, reliable bus service. Cities around the world have adopted BRT services, and view them as an integral part of their overall transit and transportation plans.  BRT routes have fewer stops than a regular bus route, which means they can cover more ground, more quickly.

The four new BRT projects will fill important gaps in the existing transit network, and provide more direct connections to major destinations. Direct connections are important, as we know that Calgarians are 50 per cent less likely to use transit if they have to make a transfer to a second (or third) bus or train. 

Calgary’s BRT network is an important part of The City’s overall transportation plan and, along with the other major transportation projects like the Green Line, will provide Calgarians with the travel options they need to move through and around the city quickly and efficiently.
