Transit subsidy now available for Chestermere residents

To enhance economical transportation options for residents, discounted passes and tickets will now be offered through the Chestermere Community Support Services’ Community Access Program to use Calgary Transit.

As Chestermere passengers are not able to utilize the City of Calgary’s subsidized transit rates, the City of Chestermere can now offer a subsidy program for any residents facing social and affordability barriers. This allows Chestermere to align subsidized fares with Calgary’s offering and remove barriers to transit ridership, including the new Chestermere Transit Link launched this summer.

Chestermere residents who are interested in applying for the transit subsidy can fill out the Community Support Services general intake form at chestermere.ca/intake or call (403) 207-7079 for assistance. 

Requests to access the transit subsidy program will be evaluated based on income as well as individual needs and circumstances. Community members are asked to reach out via the website form or by phone before coming to City Hall to arrange purchase of subsidized tickets or passes.

Advance Turn Signal Adjustments Completed on Chestermere Blvd. and Rainbow Road

Following a Council decision made at the October 26 Regular Meeting of Council, and a desire to improve safety at that intersection, the turning signals at Chestermere Blvd. and Rainbow Road have been adjusted to have dedicated advance left turn signals.

What this means is left turns from east and westbound Chestermere Blvd. on to north or southbound Rainbow Road may only be made when the advance turn signal is activated. 

Drivers in the north and southbound lanes of Rainbow Road will still be able to turn left on a straight-through green light to east or westbound Chestermere Blvd. 

The City’s traffic signal contractor was able to complete the adjustment on November 17. The City is monitoring traffic flow and usage and will make timing adjustments as needed.

Updates on construction and road work will be shared on the Capital Project Tracking System map at chestermere.ca/projects

Holiday curbside collection schedule

This year’s holiday curbside collection remains the same for most Chestermere households, except for Friday, December 24.

If your regular collection day is Friday, please remember to put your carts out on Thursday instead that week.

The Chestermere ECO Centre is open throughout the holidays. Residents are encouraged to bring in their extra holiday recycling and compost - it’s free for Chestermere locals! Visit chestermere.ca/ecocentre for more information.

Please note, City buildings (i.e.: City Hall and Community Operations) will be closed from December 24 - January 2.

Tree recycling:

The Christmas tree recycling area will be set up on Dec. 20 at John Peake Park by the boat launch, and will be available until Jan. 24 if residents would like to drop off their real trees for recycling after the holidays. No trees will be accepted at the Public Works yard.
