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.
