Victoria Day 2012 Statutory Holiday Hours of Operation for City of Calgary Facilities

The City of Calgary is adjusting hours of operation for services and facilities on Victoria Day, Monday, May 21, 2012.

City Administrative Offices
All administrative offices will be closed on Monday, May 21, 2012 and will reopen on Tuesday, May 22, 2012.

Calgary Transit
Calgary Transit will provide a Sunday level of service on Victoria Day. Regular service resumes on Tuesday, May 22, 2012.

7 Avenue CTrain service update

There will be no CTrain service on 7 Avenue over the May long weekend to allow for a number of upgrades to the system and maintenance.

Work activities include signal upgrades, traction power upgrades, rail replacement, platform edge tiling, glass replacement, painting, as well as platform and canopy cleaning. This work is key to improving the transit system for customers. Much needed upgrades will result in a more reliable system and help prepare Calgary Transit for future four-car CTrains..

The 7 Avenue closure will begin at the end of service on Friday, May 18, 2012. 7 Avenue will reopen on Tuesday, May 22, 2012.  

On Route 201, the CTrain will run between Crowfoot and Sunnyside Stations and between Somerset-Bridlewood and 39th Avenue Stations.

On Route 202, the CTrain will operate between McKnight-Westwinds and Bridgeland Stations.

Shuttle buses will replace CTrain service in the affected areas. Please visit www.calgarytransit.com for more details.
