“better signage needed and temperature needs to be moderated but a great concept”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a great concept that allows the traveler to flow through the downtown area without fear of weather, traffic or delay at lights. There are ample shopping opportunities as well and building access to most of the major buildings is available...Signage definitely needs to be improved so that novices don't get lost in the maze of corridors. and the temperature along some of the bridges is exceptionally high and shoul;d be moderated from an environmental impact and comfort level as well.

“The best and the worst”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The magical web of passenger overpasses that connect west downtown to the Bow and beyond is a warm efficient way to get from A to B. Unfortunately, the convenience means that thousands of business folks don't venture into the elements and get a breath of fresh air or shop at a quaint street level shop.

“Perfect, especially in the cold”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Almost every building in downtown Calgary is linked by this system of walkways. The walkways are very clean and are all very cool to visit. The system has a lot of shops and restaurants to visit. If you are visiting Calgary, I would definetley recommend visiting +15 for a few hours. Very convenient system for those who work in the downtown. I use it everyday.

“We use it every day!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

For anyone that has to rely on wheeled mobility, this is a great way to get around downtown.
While not all +15s are connected, you can get around about 80% of the downtown core without setting foot out of doors; a definite bonus during inclement weather, a great way to avoid vehicular traffic and you never have to wait for traffic lights.

“Why go outside when winter rears its ugly head?”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Most of downtown Calgary is linked by a network of walkways that keep pedestrians out of the ice and snow. The system connects virtually every type of restaurant and service provider required by office workers and visitors. There's a handy mobile web site map to help navigate.
