Providing transportation choices through Calgary's busiest area: the Centre City Cycle Track Network

As part of providing Calgarians with more transportation choices through and within Calgary’s busiest area- the Centre City- The City is proposing a network of cycle tracks in downtown that will connect to the 7 Street S.W. cycle track. A number of streets and avenues are being proposed:

  • 1 Street S.E.
  • 5 Street S.W.
  • 8 Street S.W., south of 10 Avenue
  • 8 Avenue/9 Avenue S
  • 12 Avenue S

The cycle track network will connect the popular Elbow River and Bow River pathways through the Centre City and to its many destinations, such as office buildings, commercial districts, arts and recreation places, and residential communities. Ultimately, the cycle track network will improve transportation choices for Calgarians and make roadways safer for people who walk, bike or drive in the downtown.

You can learn more about the project, as well as see proposed designs for the 1 Street S.E. cycle track at the following open houses:

  • Suncor Energy Centre (111-5 Avenue S.W.); Tuesday, Feb. 11, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
  • CORE Shopping Centre, +15 level by Holt Renfrew (324-8 Avenue S.W.); Monday, Feb. 10, to Friday, Feb. 14. Staff will be onsite from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. daily.
