Changes in Calgary Transit Routes

posted Dec 13, 2017, 1:41 PM by Douglas Ratke



Calgary Transit have made their quarterly adjustments to routes and schedules based on customer feedback, ridership levels and changing traffic pattern.


Winter Service Changes will be in effect on Monday, December 25.


Transit have posted a summarized list of the changes on their website and have been actively advertising the changes on all our rider tools, including Twitter and our app. 


Below you will see the same list with the addition of the impacted ward.


NEW ROUTE

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.

ADJUSTED ROUTES

Route 92
McKenzie Towne

Modifications are being made to the Douglas Glen Park and Ride to improve bus reliability, transfers between routes, and to accommodate the future Green Line LRT. A new transit-only road with new bus stops has been constructed and routes in the area were adjusted to take advantage of the new infrastructure.

Route 92 has changed slightly to use the new transit-only road. We have changed the location of some bus stops to improve travel time and reliability. If a stop is relocated it still will be nearby its old location.
