Calgary Transit

$2.75 to ride the train or bus in Calgary. Not a terrible rate really.

Our family used the transit system for the first time in Calgary on July 1st to go to Prince's Island Park for the festivities and to avoid the parking chaos. I brought change in case the machines didn't take credit card (which they didn't). So, I walked up to the ticket machine to buy Amber and I a ticket to discover that it requires exact change and that it only sells one ticket at a time. My two toonies, one loonie, and two quarters could not purchase two tickets.

Really Calgary? You can't get machines high tech enough to spit out change or sell tickets with a credit card or more than one ticket at a time. Really?
