    52 Street and 72 Avenue SE.
  2. General Route Discussion and History

    I'm sure the new shopping area at Stoney and 17th also contributes to the 440's ridership now.

  6. Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

    Throwback Thursday! #5001 (interestingly one of the last to be withdrawn from service) photographed on a golden morning in September of 2014. IMG_7873 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  7. Transit vehicles are generally numbered according to order of manufacture, but it's not uncommon for some to arrive before others.
  8. Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    Articulated buses on both Local and Express red line shuttle today! Rode the Express shuttle straight to City Hall. Not very easy for me to give an opinion of it. It took the bus exactly 20 minutes to get to City Hall from Heritage, and I'm not sure how much time it really shaves off from the standard Local shuttle making all stops (waiting at the long red light at 61 Ave versus making that right turn to get into and out of Chinook station). The area around Chinook is very slow moving. Also, I didn't notice the Local shuttles making any clear indications that they stop at all stations (though I may be wrong), other than the subtle lack of "EXPRESS" flashing on the sign. Not sure if there would be a program for "LOCAL", or preferably (since we're in Calgary and not New York City) "ALL STATIONS".

    #8244. Sign installed in June of this year.
  12. Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    With it still being an SG low floor commonly used for off peak service, I personally wouldn't consider it unusual to see one out on an SG key on a weekend.
  13. General BRT discussion

    Construction has begun on a BRT station at Heritage bus loop, Route 3/182 stop.

    Came across this on the Glenbow Museum website. Here's an aerial shot of Anderson Garage and Station taken in 1987.
