COLT service launches October 7 and is free to ride for the rest of 2019 as the system is monitored and adjusted to improve service.
COLT: Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit is Cochrane’s bold new transit system, designed specifically for our community. COLT uses technology to provide responsive on-demand service — where and when Cochranites want it.
Local transit in Cochrane was approved in 2018 as part of the 2019-2021 budget. The system was developed as Canada’s only fully only on-demand service after extensive community consultation. Transit riders will request a bus from one designated stop to another designated stop in Town.
Buses in Cochrane will serve local destinations initially, but plans are underway to add regional destinations like Crowfoot LRT station and post-secondary institutions in Calgary.
