  1. General Route Discussion and History

    https://www.calgarytransit.com/news/introducing-route-37-route-3-splitting-two Beginning Monday, September 4, 2017, Route 3 will be split at Heritage Station. Route 3 will continue to run between Sandstone and Heritage, while the new Route 37 will take over the south portion, from Heritage to Canyon Meadows. Route 37 Heritage / Canyon Meadows View Route 37 map Check the Route 37 schedule Bus frequency for the new Route 37 will be as follows: Peak periods: Every 10 minutes Mid-day: Every 20 minutes Evening: Every 20 minutes Route 3 Sandstone / Elbow Drive View Route 3 map Bus frequency remains the same, however some trip times may have changed – check the Route 3 schedule. Why is the route being split? Splitting the route allows us to use buses more efficiently and better target the needs of customers in different sections of the city. For example, the north part of Route 3 requires large articulated buses (60 ft.), while the south portion does not. By splitting the route we can dedicate more articulated buses to Route 3, and use standard size and shuttle buses on Route 37. Additionally, splitting Route 3 allows bus schedules to be more consistent and reliable. If there’s traffic congestion downtown or delays in the north, it won’t impact Route 37. Fish Creek Park & Elbow Drive south of Canyon Meadows Drive S.W. The section of Route 3 on Elbow Drive south of Canyon Meadows Drive S.W. has been closed since June 26 and buses have been detoured to Canyon Meadows Drive S.W. (view map). Due to the deteriorating condition of the road in Fish Creek Park, it’s no longer safe to run buses in that area. Starting on September 4, the detour will become a permanent part of Route 37.

    There's a bus queue jump and priority signal at both ends of the new Macleod Tr / 162 Ave interchange.

    Oops, you are correct. Zooming in on the label on those long narrow boxes reveals they contain a "patio door heater". Good catch.

    A few more interior shots of this wrap. Best campaign I've seen in a while!

    Here's a shot of the south end: The shelter is slightly different than usual and doesn't appear to be heated.
  7. The city logo and analog clock have been shrunk to make room for bigger station text. Good change.
  8. Hi everyone, As anyone who has ever applied to be a Wiki editor probably knows, our old application process left much to be desired. Turnaround times could be quite long, and if you weren't accepted, you were left wondering why, or if anyone had even seen your post. We're introducing a new system to remedy these issues. Starting now, you can visit the new 'Applications' forum to apply. We'll get back to you within a week, and we'll share info with you on why we came to the decision we did. In addition, please give a warm welcome to our two new Wiki moderators - @Articulated and @Cappy! They'll be helping out with the new application process in addition to helping keep the Wiki itself running smoothly. If you applied in the old thread after July 1, 2017, your name is in for consideration and we'll get back to you by August 11. Everyone else is welcome to apply again. Thanks!

    I was able to get some better shots of the real time bus sign at Crowfoot this evening. Came back later and there was a message about the sign being part of a pilot. I found this article a little while ago - check out whose routes are on display could be related to it being a pilot project https://busride.com/luminator-introduces-full-color-fine-pitch-outdoor-sign-system-high-brightness-led-stairwell-light/

    A few shots of the signage at Sunnyside this past weekend. Awesome stuff. New LED lighting at Lions Park station.
