“The success of public Wi-Fi at our stations at Chinook, Shaganappi Point, City Hall, Centre Street and First Street demonstrates that Calgarians find value in the service. Expanding public Wi-Fi to downtown CTrain stations is part of our customer commitment. It’s about investing in projects and initiatives that positively impact the customer experience,” said Calgary Transit Director Doug Morgan.
Since the launch of public Wi-Fi in 2014, hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors to Calgary have enjoyed public Wi-Fi at city facilities. The most popular location, based on guest connections, is the City Hall CTrain Station, with over 36,000 users connecting to the ShawGuest hotspot per month.
The City of Calgary awarded Shaw Communications Inc. with the contract to provide public Wi-Fi at city-owned locations in December 2013. There are over 40 city facilities connected to public Wi-Fi including recreation centres, arenas, golf courses and CTrain stations. The service is available to any member of the general public and does not require a Shaw account.
