There are two ways to get from the airport to whichever hotel/motel you are staying in:
1) Public transit: Bus line 300 ($8 cash) takes you downtown, where you can catch a bus to the hotel ($3 cash). For this option, we recommend visiting the city of Calgary’s trip planner before your departure. And remember to carry Canadian cash.
2) Taxi: Take a taxi from the airport to your hotel/motel. Cost to South Calgary is at least $55.
For more information on both of these, visit the airport website.
