Transit routes changed in Red Deer County

Introduction of Hwy 2A South Regional Transit Service prompted changes

The start of the 2A South Regional Transit service connecting Innisfail, Penhold and Springbrook will mean some changes to the transit route into Springbrook and Gasoline Alley.

The new transit service for Gasoline Alley (Route 12) will not enter Springbrook. That destination will shift to the 2A South Regional route. This change will create a 30-minute route from Bower Place mall to the turnaround point in Gasoline Alley and back.

Route 12 service will run Monday to Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 10:55 p.m. It will also run on Sundays and statutory holidays from 9 a.m. to 6:25 p.m. This marks an increase in service for the route compared to the previous schedule.

“These changes mark a major improvement in the overall service level of our transit,” says Jo-Ann Symington, Red Deer County community services manager. “We are getting people to more destinations in a more efficient manner.”
