CALGARY – For the first time ever, Calgary Transit is offering discounted day passes during the Calgary Stampede.

The pilot project announced on Tuesday will see reduced-rate passes sold from July 2nd to 12th, 2015.

During that time, Adult day passes will be $6.50 instead of $9.50 and Youth day passes will be $4.50 instead of $6.75.

Calgary Transit Director Doug Morgan says the change comes at a time when parking in the downtown core is at a premium and “cabs are always in demand.”

To validate the pass, customers just have to scratch the day they are travelling prior to boarding a CTrain or bus.

The passes are already available at Calgary Transit’s customer service centre, 7-Eleven, Mac’s and Safeway stores. They will also be sold through ticket vending machines at CTrain stations during the ten days of Stampede.

The discounted passes can only be used between July 2nd and 12th, and will be valid for one full day.
