  1. Noticed On Demand trip planning and mobile fare payments are now available in Transit App. Does leave me wondering why they're running a gigantic ad campaign right now for the standalone MyFare app, though.
  2. "The City of Calgary is deploying battery-electric public transit buses and associated rapid-charging infrastructure as part of a $13.9 million project supported by $7 million in funding support from ERA. As part of the project, Calgary Transit is conducting operations and maintenance staff training. It is also re-designing and re-scheduling transit routes in a large section of the city to accommodate electrification. In addition to the immediate GHG reductions through a one-time replacement of diesel buses, the project will also build capacity to continue and transition electric buses into the transit fleet on an ongoing basis. The lessons learned from the project will be actively shared with Alberta municipalities, transit organizations, and other Canadian municipalities. The project secured funding through ERA's BEST Challenge—a $100 million funding opportunity for biotechnology, electricity, and sustainable transportation innovations."
  3. Noticed the timeline has been pushed back around 6 months. https://www.calgarytransit.com/content/transit/en/home/plans---projects/electric-bus-pilot-project.html "Summer 2021 to Spring 2023 Identify appropriate routes, procure and install charging equipment, take delivery of electric buses Summer 2023 Use on select routes, gather performance data" The page previously had these dates as Fall 2022 and Winter 2022.

  5. CBC Calgary is running a series on safety on transit: Yesterday's piece. Today's.
  6. Downtown West/Kerby and 6th Street now have the new PA speakers. Centre St got them a little while back too. Kerby has 2 sets of new LED lights - I assume as a trial before they are rolled out more broadly: Also, there's mention in the CT Recovery Strategy of an interesting upgrade coming:
  7. I like it! I'd much rather sit on clean, hard plastic than dirty/dusty/stained fabric. The red looks good too, gives the interior a bit of a refresh .
  8. My Fare adds seniors, low-income pass options for Calgary Transit riders https://livewirecalgary.com/2022/02/10/my-fare-seniors-low-income-pass-calgary-transit/
  9. Nice sky this evening - a couple snaps from the East Village:

  11. Some of the downtown stations are getting new PA speakers - at least City Hall, 1 Street, and 7 Street have been done. Significantly louder and clearer than before. Big upgrade IMO.
  12. It's currently on 10 St SW just south of 7th Avenue! Pretty cool surprise going by there this afternoon.
  13. CMLC posted a timelapse of the first 3 months of construction on Twitter:
