Need to get around on Thanksgiving Monday? Calgary says some services are impacted.

CALGARY — If you’re headed through Calgary this long weekend, officials say some services and routes have changed and all public facilities are closed Monday.

The city says Calgary Transit will be running a regular weekend service for Saturday and Sunday, but Monday will be on a holiday schedule.

There are also some specific changes in place at some stations this weekend:

The pedestrian ramp at Brentwood station is closed on the Co-op side until 7 p.m. on Oct. 10. There is no impact to Red Line service and the stairs remain open. Signage is posted to help those with accessibility issues

Red Line service is closed between City Hall and 39 Avenue stations all day from Oct. 10 to early morning on the 13th. Buses will be replacing train service for the impacted stations.

For full information on transit schedules, consult Calgary Transit’s website.

Crews working on 88 St. S.E. will be putting down gravel and paving sections of the road on Oct. 11 and 12. The final completion date for the project is scheduled for summer 2021.

The Calgary Parking Authority says holiday rates will be in effect at certain surface lots and parkades. Free parking is in effect for all on-street ParkPlus zones on Monday.

CEMA WISHES EVERYONE A SAFE THANKSGIVING

The Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) is reminding all Calgarians to have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

You can do this by keeping your gatherings small and holding them in a well-ventilated area or, better yet, outdoors if the weather holds up.

You should also have a designated ‘server’ to put food on plates instead of holding a buffet or allowing guests to serve themselves.
