City Services: Labour Day 2016
We're adjusting our hours of operation for Labour Day on Monday, September 5. Here's a complete list of what you need to know:
Calgary Transit will provide a Sunday level of service on Labour Day, Monday, Sept. 5. Fall Service changes begin the holiday Monday as well. Stay up to date on changes to the routes you use; subscribe to our Email Alerts, visit the schedules page or follow us on Twitter @calgarytransit.
From September 3 to 5, Lions Park and SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee stations will be closed. Shuttle buses will replace CTrain service between Banff Trail and Sunnyside stations. View map [PDF]. This disruption is expected to end by 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 5. This was arranged to give those heading to the Labour Day Classic enough time to get to the festivities. Go Stamps Go!
On-street parking is free and Holiday rates will be in effect at select Calgary Parking Authority surface lots and parkades on Labour Day.
Special event road closures
The Shaw Charity Classic golf tournament, X-Fest and Calgary Pride Parade are all underway this weekend. Visit our traffic page for updates on road closures or construction to help avoid delays.

Back to school:
School and playground zones
A reminder for drivers, last year The City replaced all school zones with playground zones, which means they're in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. year round.
Calgary AfterSchool is open to all youth between the ages of 6 - 16 and offers free activities between 3 -6 p.m. on school days.
Helpful tips for parents and kids, on behalf of the Calgary Police Service to help ensure the school year is both safe and educational for everyone.
