As Chestermere continues to grow, City Council and Administration are considering ways in which to improve services for current and future citizens.
Regional public transit is a service offered by many municipalities to help residents commute between municipalities.
Transit can provide mobility options for residents without vehicles, improve a community’s environmental outcomes by taking cars off the road, enable more affordable lifestyles, and encourage social interactions amongst riders.
For several months, Chestermere worked with the City of Calgary to explore an extension of the MAX Purple line to Chestermere. The new transit link launched on August 30, 2021.
The transit extension is in a pilot phase and will be evaluated throughout the term of the agreement with Calgary. The current route has twelve stops on the west side of Chestermere. More stops throughout Chestermere and on the east side of Chestermere Lake may be added in the future.
