Calgary Transit's puppy bus aiming to soothe stress

Did you know that simply petting a dog can lower stress levels and improve your mood? So what better way to start your day than cuddling with a cute, squishy puppy?

On Wednesday, May 18, Calgary Transit and the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) will be at Anderson Station with a bus full of puppies looking for snuggles from customers as they start their commute. Our “Puppy Bus” will be parked near the entrance to the Anderson Station building from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. 

We know many of our customers recently returned to working in the office, and it’s been a stressful transition for some. We encourage riders at Anderson Station to stop by for a quick puppy break to start the day.

Please note, because these puppies are quite young and haven’t had all their shots, you’ll be asked to use hand sanitizer before your puppy cuddle.

We want to thank the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society for sharing these puppies with us. They’re always looking for adopters and foster homes for their animals. Visit for details.
