Getting around the city during the Calgary Stampede just got a little easier, as the City of Calgary has announced that the CTrain lines will be running 24 hours during the ten-day event.
Along with their discounted day passes, Calgary Transit will be saving you that pricey cab ride back from the Stampede grounds after staying a little too late (don’t worry, we’ve all been there).
