Dear Calgary Transit Rider,
The City of Calgary is investing in new and improved Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and the routes that link into it. Together, the new BRT routes and supporting routes will significantly shape the way the transit network operates in many communities.
Calgary Transit is reviewing existing bus services to develop a more effective and efficient bus network in Calgary. The goal of this review is to increase connectivity, reliability and efficiency and ensure customers can get to where they need to go. The review will be based on the following new BRT routes:
The changed or new bus routes mean better connections and convenience for transit riders. These routes fill important gaps from the east side to the west side of the City and better connect riders to major destinations.
With the North and South Crosstown and 17 Avenue S.E. BRTs starting service this fall, there will be dozens of revisions to existing bus routes across the City that connect to them.
The City Needs Your Input.
Starting in April, we are collecting input from riders on the proposed revisions. We want to know what you like about these changes, what you think could be improved and any additional information you feel is important for Calgary Transit to consider.
We Need You To Tell Us:

Wed April 25 Remington YMCA | 108 Quarry Park Rd. S.E. | 4-6p.m.

KGL Constructors will be driving piling south of 146 Avenue and Fish Creek Boulevard S.W. The piling is required to build a new a bridge that will span the northbound and southbound lanes of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road. Once complete, the bridge will connect Fish Creek Boulevard with the portion of 37 Street that is south of 146 Avenue.
The CECA Board of Directors has embarked upon a project with the Federation of Calgary Communities and Urban Planning students from the U of C. This will help determine how the community is used and what programs and projects can be developed. If you are a resident of Calgary Evergreen, you can participate by filling out the survey at the following link.
Please complete the survey by Oct 20th.
A heads up that construction on the 162 Avenue connection will be starting in either late July or early August.
Construction on this project will be completed by the end of the year, but the connection will remain closed until the SWRR opens to traffic in late 2021. During construction, residents may notice periodic increases in construction traffic in the area. It is also important to note that access from westbound 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will remain open until the SWRR is completed. Once the SWRR is open to traffic, the left turn from 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will be permanently closed. A noise study was conducted and determined that a noise barrier was required along the south side of the 162 Avenue extension and that will also be constructed during this time.
Here is a link to the project design, and the noise barrier is identified in this as well.

Have you recently acquired a new garden or looking to ‘spruce’ up an existing one? The addition of a tree or shrub can be the backbone of your garden design, elevating it to the next level of enjoyment. Join us in Gardening with Trees and Shrubs to discover the variety of attractive and hardy species available to revamp your home and garden. Learn to maximize the health of your tree and/or shrub by understanding the various microclimates within your garden, water conservation strategies, and the importance of mulch. Did we miss something? Don’t fret; there is an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation to ensure everyone feels confident about the fresh addition to their property.
