Quality of infrastructure for Airdrie

Airdrie has its own public transportation system, a network of buses run by Airdrie Transit. Services can be accessed throughout the week, with multiple bus routes heading to Calgary, including the Intercity Express (ICE) that transports passengers directly to downtown Calgary.

For transit throughout the province and the rest of Canada, Airdrie does not have its own coach bus or passenger train services, but they can be accessed in nearby Calgary. For example, the following coach bus services all stop in Calgary and can connect travelers with major cities in Alberta, BC, and elsewhere in Canada: Ebus, Cold Shot, Rider Express, The Canada Bus, and Red Arrow. To hop on board a Via Rail train, you will need to travel north to one of the following cities or towns: Edmonton, Edson, Evansburg, Hinton, Jasper, Viking, and Wainwright. For air travel, Calgary International Airport is just over 15 minutes by car from Airdrie (since the airport is located in the northern part of Calgary).

If you prefer to drive around Alberta, Airdrie is conveniently located on Highway AB-2 and isn’t far from the Trans Canada Highway. Next, Airdrie has several medical centres and clinics for locals to use, like the Airdrie Community Health Centre, Midtown Medical Centre, and the East Airdrie Medical Centre.

Safety and security for Airdrie

The Airdrie detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is responsible for keeping the city of Airdrie safe and secure. However, the good news is that they don’t have their work cut out for them since Airdrie has a crime rate well below the national average. The area also isn’t prone to natural disasters, with a climate that generally includes mild summers and snowy winters. In an emergency, always dial 9-1-1.

Airdrie property market

Airdrie’s property market is rising quickly. Due to the city’s close proximity to Calgary and relative affordability, many people are clamouring to move to this north Calgary region. Thankfully, prices are still affordable, especially when compared to Calgary and other major Canadian cities. Some of the most common types of properties interested buyers will find here are bungalows, detached homes, duplexes, townhomes, and semi-detached homes. It is also worth noting that Alberta does not collect land transfer tax on real estate transactions and there is no PST or HST in the province, which makes home sales that much cheaper.

Something wonderful about Airdrie

Airdrie has an interesting history that is connected to the development of Canada’s rail system. In fact, the city was first established as a railway siding while the Calgary and Edmonton Railway was being constructed back in 1889. It was named after Airdrie, Scotland, and originally served as a stop for steam trains. It wasn’t until 1901 that a building not related to the railway was built, a farmhouse with a barn. Later that year, a post office and a store opened. The village of Airdrie officially came to be in 1909. Today, Airdrive is a thriving city north of Calgary. Locals and visitors alike who want to learn more about Airdrie’s history are encouraged to visit the Nose Creek Valley Museum, which offers an overview of the city’s past and present.
