One of the conveniences of using the new LRT line is reliability – the LRT is not impeded by traffic congestion, accidents or poor road conditions the way cars and buses are. Although reliability overall is a benefit of the LRT, sometimes incidents do occur that delay a train. Buses also experience delays, often due to conditions or incidents on the roads.
It can be frustrating to wait for a train or a bus that is delayed, which is why Transit utilizes a delay notification system for customers that subscribe to it. You can sign up to receive notices to your email any time a train or bus that you frequent is delayed so that you can alter your commute.
Improvements to ticket vending machines at all LRT stations
Over a year ago, one machine per station was modified to accept credit and debit card payments?. In response to feedback from customers, every machine has now been retrofitted to accept credit and debit payments. The machines have also been modified to return change when tickets are purchased using cash. These changes provide easy, convenient ways for customers to pay Calgary Transit fares.
