Important Information for Calgary Transit Users

If you're a transit user (like the author of this blog post) or planning to take transit to this month's venue, please note that the Chinook LRT station is closed for construction for the next eight months for modifications to accommodate four-car CTrain cars in the future, and that you won't be able to board or disembark from the CTrain at that station.

Alternative route information can be found at Calgary Transit's website, but if you're a CTrain user and want to take that to the venue, shuttle buses to Chinook station are available at the 39 Avenue CTrain station.

The Chinook bus terminal has been relocated to 3 Street SW as well and all buses that normally would have stopped at the Chinook LRT station can be caught there.

For the most up-to-date information regarding alternative transit routes at Chinook, make sure to check out Calgary Transit's website.

Finally, the new year means we're on the look out for bold ideas and new ways of thinking.  We're looking to bring on many new Trustees and volunteers in a variety of fields for 2013, so if you've ever thought about (or if you're interested!) in joining Team AF-Calgary, now's the perfect time to send an email to

Hope to see you this Thursday!
