Buses to Gasoline Alley running late

The start of transit service to Gasoline Alley and Springbrook is a little behind schedule.

The start of transit service to Gasoline Alley and Springbrook is a little behind schedule.

The City of Red Deer and Red Deer County were hoping to have the first buses rolling on routes starting at Bower Place Shopping Centre next month, but the first trips aren’t expected to be made until August, said city transit manager Kevin Joll.

An additional full-size transit bus is ready to go and the city is expecting a new Action Bus any day now. Both were purchased by the county.

The city is also awaiting final authorization from Alberta Transportation to extend service from one municpality into another.

Red Deer County recently put out a tender for 10 bus bays in Gasoline Alley to accommodate transit service.

It is expected that service from Bower to Gasoline Alley will start around 6:25 a.m. and run until 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 11 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday service would be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Buses will also run to Springbrook during morning and afternoon rush hour periods.

The exact times and schedules will be made public before the service begins.
