How to get to Calgary

Road to Calgary
The Trans Canada Highway runs just north of Calgary giving it a good east - west connections to the rest of Canada by road.

Greyhound operates this route which heads east to Regina (764km / 11 hours), and west to Banff (120km / 2 hours) and Vancouver (1057km / 15 hours).

A highway also connects Calgary to the north, to the capital of Alberta, Edmonton (299km / 3.5 hours). Greyhound and Red Arrow operate buses on this route.

Rail to Calgary
The national, government owned VIA Rail does not run to Calgary. The only passenger train which uses Calgary train station is the privately owned Rocky Mountaineer Railtours train. The route heads west from Calgary stopping in Banff then continuing through the Rockies to Kamloops and Vancouver.

This is a much more expensive way to travel the route (about 5 times more than the bus) but it is a very scenic, comfortable and relaxed way to experience Canada from a different perspective.

Air to Calgary
Calgary International Airport is 25 minutes drive northeast of downtown. AirCanada connects Calgary to more destinations across Canada, the USA and the rest of the world direct from here. WestJet flies from Calgary to destinations in western Canada.

Many US airlines and European charter flights fly to Calgary
