And, just like that, we WILL have a white Christmas. Thanks Calgary for your patience in all of this snowy weather. It might slow down traffic, but our #CheckerCheer campaign is ramping up!
Our drivers have been spreading #CheckerCheer all across Calgary this month. Most recently, our drivers handed out a pair of Calgary Flames tickets and a Limo/Dinner Package to these lucky passengers. The smiles on their faces were priceless!
From the university students to the new Canadians and the elderly gentlemen we picked up at the hospital, our customers are all unique. Their individual stories have touched our drivers and we’re so happy to be able to thank them in some small way.
We’ve gifted 48 people so far…and we’re only halfway through. Will you be next?
Our Holiday Pop-up Warming Tents have been a huge success. We’ve had lots of folks stopping by to catch a cab, have something to eat, grab a Gatorade and just say “hi!”
Last weekend, we had two special guests drop by the tent. Here’s Kiki Davies from Pursuing Pretty and Ryan Massel, aka Mr. Fabulous. Ryan loved the free pizza and Kiki loved our Checker warming blanket and propane heaters. Ryan caught a Santa Cab home that night!

Don’t forget, we have two more nights for the holiday pop-up warming tent in downtown YYC:
- Friday, Dec. 22nd at 1527 5th ST. SW down the street from National where the old Waves coffee shop used to be.
- Friday, Dec. 29th the tent moves to 301 10th Ave SW, next to Brigg’s and Japanese Village, just down from National on 10th.
Meanwhile, even the news is taking notice of our campaign. The Daily Hive YYC featured us on their website and our President, Kurt Enders, was on Breakfast Television recently, urging Calgarians to plan ahead for a safe and sober ride home.
We also took our Checker Cheer over to Global Calgary on Dec. 13th for the Morning of Giving. We had 5 cabs full of presents, which were donated to the Spirit of Christmas. This worthwhile charity delivers presents to those in need on Christmas Eve.
Our campaign continues right through until Dec. 30th and we hope we to see you at the tent, in on of our cabs or connect with us online. Take a selfie with your driver and tag it with #CheckerCheer. Thanks YYC for being such a great city to do business in.
Happy Holidays from the Checker Transportation Group!
