At best, service is mediocre and many routes don't run on time. No attempt made to coordinate buses with the train - buses almost always pull away as train passengers are disembarking. Don't judge the whole of Canada by the way Calgary Transit is managed!

This is one of the best transit systems that I have encountered in Canada. Clean, easy to navigate and trains arriving promptly at the stations all make for a great experience.

Nice and clean transit, usually on time and a cheap way to get around. Its free in the downtown and a efficient way to get from one end of the city to the other, would strongly recommend it

These are the three best things about Calgary transit system. If you're downtown, there's nothing better than jumping on a C-Train to hop skip and jump to the other side of downtown for free. Beware that you don't leave the downtown - if you don't...More

Unlike Toronto where the streetcars are just plunked in the middle of the street and cause horrendous traffic problems (not to mention that driving a motorcycle along those tracked streets is a white-knuckle frightfest), Calgary has the whole streetcar angle worked out correctly.
