Calgary Transit - What You Need to Know

Calgary Transit offers a variety of ways to get around the city. Here is everything that you need to know about transit in Calgary.


There are over 1,100 buses operating throughout the city. In addition to the 160 routes, there are five BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) routes that average a higher speed and fewer stops.

The city offers a variety of fare payment options like - cash, tickets, day passes, or monthly passes.


The Red Line runs from Crowfoot in the northwest to Somerset-Bridlewood in the south, and the Blue Line starts at Saddletowne in the northeast and travels to 69 Street in the west.

The CTrain travels downtown along 7 Avenue between City Hall and West/Kerby Stations. The Kerby station is near our main office. This stretch of the CTrain system is in the free fare zone. This means that you can hop on for free when travelling along 7 Avenue. Make sure you purchase your fare if you’re travelling outside of downtown.
