Calgary, get from A to be B on Calgary Transit with less OMG 🚀
The beginnings of what would later become Calgary Transit started in 1909, with the Calgary Street Railway. It featured 12 electric streetcars that served the then city of 30,000 people.
Eventually electric trolleybuses replaced the streetcars, then diesel buses replaced the streetcars. And in 1981, Calgary Transit became one of the first North American cities to operate a light rail system.
A system as old and complex as Calgary’s takes a little getting used to if it’s your first time. And if you’ve been riding it for a while, you know how frustrating the delays can be. But fear not, Rocketman is here to lend you a helping hand!
