Transit is a fast and efficient way to get around downtown. The C-train brings thousands of Calgarians downtown every day, and it's free between 10th street and City Hall Stations.

Public Transit

Calgary's fast and efficient public transit system makes it easy to reach Downtown from any corner of the city.

The popular Light Rail Transit (LRT) or 'C-Train', operates on two lines heading north out of downtown and one heading south. The fare system in place is an honour system; customers are expected to have "proof of payment" with them at all times while riding the C-Train or in designated "fare restricted" areas.

The downtown portion of the C-Train which travels along 7 Avenue is known as the free fare zone. It is free to ride either C-Train route between 3rd Street East and 11th Street West along 7 Avenue, but a fare must be purchased if traveling outside of the downtown area.

Please visit Calgary Transit or the Customer Service Centre at 240 - 7 Ave SW for more information.
