About ATU Local 583:

ATU Local 583 is made up of the 3,100 trained and skilled individuals who inform, maintain and operate Calgary’s buses, shuttle buses and trains. Every day they face Calgary’s traffic congestion and road conditions – good days and bad – and make sure you arrive safely to your destination.

They ensure your kids make it to class on time, that grandma makes her doctor’s appointment and they do their very best to get you work on time safely every day.

Thanks to ATU Local 583 members, there are a lot less cars on the roads, the air is cleaner and we can feel proud to live in a vibrant city that offers accessible transit to all.

All Calgarians can get around our beautiful city thanks to public transit. From our most vulnerable citizens to our daily working commuters, transit is the thread tying our communities together and keeping our city moving and vibrant.

Why Transit Matters to You

“My daughter uses the transit every day to commute to work, and medical appointments. It is critically important that there is safe transit that allows her to travel from north of the airport to all areas in Calgary.” – Jennifer
