Getting There and Back SHC

Wanting to check out the new YMCA in the south east but need
more info on how to get there?

The new YMCA in the south east is located in
the South Health Campus (4448 Front Street SE Calgary, Alberta T3M 1M4)

Free parking is available along Front Street while
paid basement parking is available too!

For Calgary Transit Patrons, getting to the YMCA in the
South Health Campus is easier than you think.

Once you get off the c-train at Somerset-Bridlewood train
station, head to the south side of the platform to catch the 406 bus. This will
take you directly to the South Health Campus where the new YMCA is located.

Calgary Transit is planning on extending more bus routes to
serve the South Health Campus more effectively, which means… much easier access
to the YMCA! Here is a link to Calgary Transit Rider’s Guide to the South
Health Campus: http://www.calgarytransit.com/pdf/riders_guide_shc.pdf
