What to expect:

Red Line trains coming from the north and downtown will terminate at City Hall/Bow Valley College Station (there will be no impact on Blue Line trains!). Trains coming from the south will terminate at Erlton/Stampede Station. For travel between City Hall/Bow Valley College and Erlton/Stampede, we’ll have shuttle buses replacing train service.

Full CTrain service will be back up and running again on Monday, April 22.

Why are we doing this?

We know these closures can have an impact on your travel, which is why we try to keep them as minimally disruptive as possible. That’s also why they’re so important – because doing preventative work and maintenance now can ensure we’re providing Calgarians with a safe, reliable, and efficient transit system.

Some work can be completed while keeping the trains on track, but there are certain projects that are just too big, or can’t share the space safely while trains are in service, and they require fully closing off sections of the line. Occasionally, a power cut is required to carry out specific work, which also means we need to close the line to train travel.

This weekend, the repair and maintenance projects on the list include:

  • Concrete remediation by the Big 4 building,
  • Work on the rails,
  • and other projects, as time allows.  

Thank you for your patience during these closures!
