How can you stay safe during snow events in Calgary?

Motorists are reminded to observe changing weather conditions – snow covered roads, ice and visibility can be a factor in your commute. Prepare yourself before you head out, leave plenty of time to get to where you need to go and adapt to the changing weather. Stay safe out there!

Walking and wheeling users encouraged to plan ahead. Know your route and expect there could be unexpected delays. Snowfall can create other challenges during your commute – so ensure you are properly dressed before starting your journey.

No matter your mode of travel, prepare for the trip: plan your route, leave plenty of time for travel and ensure you are properly outfitted for the winter weather (bundle up, good footwear).

We encourage you to make a plan before heading out on your trip.

We encourage all Calgary Transit customers to plan ahead, give themselves extra travel time, and stay connected with us through our communication channels.

This page will be updated during all winter snow storms, and throughout the week following a snow event, in order to give Calgarians frequent updates on road conditions.

Before, during and after snowfall we provide updates and important information for Calgarians. The City responds to snow events using a Council-approved priority snow plan. This plan follows priorities set out by The City’s Snow and Ice Control policy.

Areas not cleared by The City

The City does not have Council approval or budget to:

  • Remove snow on residential streets, and most roadways.
    • Residential streets are always monitored following each snow event; crews will level ruts and apply materials as needed
  • Clear sidewalks bordering private homes or businesses; this is the responsibility of the home/business owner
  • Clear back lanes or alleyways
  • Clear snow on engineered walkways: the pedestrian/cycling thoroughfares located between private properties, usually with a barrier at either end to prevent motorized access
