Lisa Cai Community, Daily Life, Newcomer Information, Settlement & Community News, Updates

The City of Calgary offers a variety of services and programs to the public but not all are available or open due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, let’s go through the most recent update by the City and see what services and facilities are open and available.

  1. Calgary Transit
  • Buses and C-Trains are still operating with some adjustments.
  • You may have to wait longer these days, as buses and C-Trains are running less often.
  • Don’t only rely on Google Maps! Before you leave home, remember to check the most recent changes to Calgary Transit service.
  1. Plus-15 Skywalks
  • Due to COVID-19, The City has closed all Plus 15 skywalks until further notice.
  • Joining the rest of Alberta, Calgary reopens today on May 25, but the reopening of Plus 15s will be based on when the businesses in these buildings reopen.
