Red Deer Transit reducing some evening service

As part of the 2012 budget decision by city council, Red Deer Transit will reduce service after 10:45 p.m.

As part of the 2012 budget decision by city council, Red Deer Transit will reduce service after 10:45 p.m.

Effective April 29, the Transit Department will implement two service changes.

The changes will affect evening transit service after 10 p.m. from Monday to Saturday on Routes 1 through 5 and Routes 7 through 11.

Some changes have been made to late night service at Sorensen Station downtown from Monday to Saturday.

Outbound buses will depart every 30 minutes from 6:15 am to 10:15 p.m.

The second last bus, which would be the 10:45 p.m. bus, has been cancelled, but the final bus at 11:15 p.m. is still departing from Sorensen Station.

Sunday and holiday service is not affected by this change.

Changes have also been made to arrival times at some evening stops.

After 10:00 p.m., schedule times have been slightly modified on all buses inbound to Sorensen Station.

As well, schedule times have been adjusted on all buses outbound from Sorensen Station on the last departure at 11:15 p.m.

These times replace the schedule after 10 p.m. that is currently listed in the 2011-12 Ride Guide

Informational brochures showing the schedule changes are available at Transit Customer Service or online at www.reddeer.ca/transit.

Users may check the Ride Guide for complete route information.
