Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit (COLT)

COLT is Cochrane's local on-demand transit that allows residents access to various communities throughout Cochrane. 

When residents want to ride with COLT they can use the website, mobile app or call COLT directly to request a bus at a specific stop at a specific day and time (during service hours). Buses can be requested up to a week in advance, or just minutes in advance (pending availability).

COLT & On-It Integrated Regional Service 

The Town of Cochrane, in partnership with SOUTHLAND Transportation launched a transit service integration of COLT with an enhanced On-It regional service between Cochrane and Calgary. 

This innovative public-private partnership will increase local transit capacity and create a robust regional transit schedule that meets the needs of the community. The regional service offers an easy and affordable option for people travelling between Cochrane and Calgary for work, school, shopping, and social activities.

In August 2021, Roll Scooters were awarded a permit to operate their shared e-Scooters in Cochrane on a two-year pilot program. While the Town provides the program framework, the program is fully funded and operated by Roll Scooters.

This summer, along with the electronic scooters, Roll launched e-bikes to the Cochrane-wide fleet, providing up to 40 bikes across the serviceable areas in Cochrane. The service spans from to Heritage Heights to Fireside and communities in between. 

The pilot project supports the Town’s environmental and transportation goals by limiting carbon emissions, reducing traffic congestion, and minimizing transportation gaps. The pilot will be at no cost to the Town, with a portion of the revenue from each trip donated to the Town for micro-mobility related projects, including building and maintaining protected bike lanes.
