A message from Calgary Transit for Routes 93 & 94

With the extension of the West LRT, there were revisions made to bus routes and some new routes were introduced.  Routes 93 and 94 were added with service to and from 69 Street Station.  Refinements are continually made in response to ridership and customer feedback.
 
Ridership usually stabilizes after a few years of introducing a new route.  Calgary Transit received feedback from some areas in the community that Calgary Transit buses are causing an inconvenience, especially on Sierra Morena Boulevard due to concerns about noise.  In review of feedback from customers and stable ridership, and an eye to more cost effective service, Calgary Transit conducted a review of Route 93 and 94 to make service adjustments. 
 
Calgary Transit’s ridership review suggested more customers use Route 93 during peak times than off peak times.  An option to convert to smaller community shuttle buses for off peak hours and retain bigger (regular) buses for peak hours is within guidelines for ridership and would also address community feedback.  With this option Calgary Transit will still be able to accommodate customers who need to use public transit services in the community. 
 
For Route 94, the ridership report suggested that the ridership numbers are low to the point where service can be provided on smaller buses to accommodate all the riders in the area.  During school pick up and drop off times, Calgary Transit will add a bus for St. Gregory School and Ernest Manning School to assist with this specific increase in ridership. The additional school runs are on top of existing runs, so there is a slight increase to peak period frequency on Route 94 as a result. Calgary Transit also has a new community shuttle bus which we will schedule for use for some of the trips.  These new community shuttle buses have a little more capacity compared to the smaller shuttle buses and they also have more room to manoeuvre wheelchairs, strollers and walkers.
 
Smaller shuttle buses are already made available for weekends and evening for these routes.  Calgary Transit will continue to monitor demand and feedback from the community to determine if any further changes need to be made.  The tables below show the times of the day along with bus type that we will use which became effective December 19, 2016.
