Transit Link Coming to Chestermere - Launch event to be held August 30

Transit Event-01

The City of Chestermere is pleased to announce that for the very first time, a transit link to Calgary will be available for Chestermere residents.  

“We kept hearing from our community that transit is needed for our residents. We heard you, we acted, and we made it happen – without impacting taxes!” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. 

A celebration event of the new transit link will be held on Monday, August 30, 2021 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Chestermere Recreation Centre. Members of the public are welcome to attend and will hear from Mayor Chalmers and Mayor Nenshi, can speak to Calgary Transit representatives about fares and schedules, and can enjoy complimentary donuts and refreshments provided by Chestermere Tim Hortons. 

The service, beginning August 30, will be an extension of Calgary’s MAX Purple Line and will run for two trips twice a day (during a.m. and p.m. peak times). These trips see MAX Purple continuing its route past East Hills where it currently stops, and on to Chestermere.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Calgary Transit and the development community to provide this new service for our community,” says Chalmers. “This project is a shining example of regional and inter-agency partnerships that have come together for the benefit of our residents.”

The transit extension is in a pilot phase and will be evaluated throughout the term of the agreement with Calgary. The current route has twelve stops on the west side of Chestermere. More stops throughout Chestermere and on the east side of Chestermere Lake may be added in the future. Regular Calgary Transit fares will apply. Special passes (for seniors, low income residents or students) will not currently be accepted for the Chestermere link, but will be considered in the future. Tickets can be purchased via the My Fare App or at Safeway and Petro Canada. 

More information about fares and schedules can be found at www.chestermere.ca/transit
