You may have noticed something black, fuzzy, and slightly curled on the front of Calgary buses and CTrains this month, but we promise that there is no need to be alarmed.
Calgary Transit has simply placed some moustaches on the front of a few of their transit vehicles this month as part of Movember — a month-long initiative raising money and bringing awareness to men’s health.

The new facial hair is actually part of a contest that Calgary Transit is holding this month, with the prize of a free one-month transit pass up for grabs.
#CTRiders we’re running a contest! Snap a photo of a bus or train with a ‘stache (only when it’s safe to do so) and share it on Twitter using the hashtag #CTMovember. The contest will run until Nov 30. On Dec 1st we’ll select two winners and they will receive a January Bus pass. pic.twitter.com/KPxLBedBuk

To enter, Calgarians will need to spot one of these gentlemanly vehicles, snap a photo, and then post it to either Twitter or Instagram (or both!) with the hashtag #CTMovember.
Two winners will be picked at random from the pool of entries, and they will receive free January transit passes, which will allow them to ride the freshly shaven vehicles to their hearts’ content.
Many Calgarians have already taken up the challenge, with #CTMovember posts being found all over social media.
