Heritage Day Long Weekend 7 Avenue CTrain Service Disruption

Calgary Transit will provide a Sunday level of service on Heritage Day, Monday, Aug. 2.

Additionally, Calgary Transit will be conducting a series of construction and maintenance activities on 7 Avenue downtown starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 30 through Monday, August 2. The work is part of ongoing efforts by Calgary Transit to improve the transit system.

There will be no CTrain service into the downtown past Sunnyside Station, Erlton-Stampede Station and Bridgeland-Memorial Station.

Shuttle bus service will replace CTrain service between Sunnyside Station and Erlton-Stampede Station; Sunnyside Station and Bridgeland-Memorial Station; and Bridgeland-Memorial Station and Erlton-Stampede Station.

To accommodate the work, 9 Street SW between 6 Avenue and 8 Avenue will be closed starting Friday at 7 pm for the transit upgrades.

Calgary Transit will provide express bus service to the Calgary Stampeders game on Saturday, July 31 to and from McMahon Stadium. Express buses will leave from Bridgeland-Memorial Station and Erlton-Stampede Stations and return to those stations after the game.

The 7 Avenue closure is necessary to further enhance and improve the CTrain system. It will facilitate much-needed maintenance including track rehabilitation, station and canopy cleaning and installation of a canopy on the new 4 Street West Station.

Regular CTrain service will resume on Tuesday, August 3.
