Bus-only lanes coming to Inglewood’s 9th Ave.

 

The city is creating bus-only lanes on Inglewood’s 9th Avenue S.E., one of the city’s busiest transit corridors.

Later this month, parking will be banned on the westbound side of the avenue during the morning peak, and in the eastbound lane during the afternoon peak. During those times, only buses and bicycles will be permitted in those curbside lanes.

 

The transit-friendly rule change through Inglewood’s core is part of a long-term plan to create a rapid-transit corridor towards Forest Lawn. Ninth Avenue S.E. handles many of Calgary’s busiest bus routes — 1, 302 and 305.

The rules will change within a few weeks, depending on when the weather permits sign installation, a city spokeswoman said.
