The Town of Cochrane revealed the name of the new local transit system at the Cochrane Trade Show.

COLT: Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit is the highlight of the Town booth.

Mayor Jeff Genung is looking forward to sharing details with the community

“As the only community in Canada to offer a fully on-demand, stop-to-stop transit system, this is something we are proud of and are excited to highlight,” said Mayor Genung. “I’m pleased that we selected a name and design that showcases this unique service.”

The Town booth also has a map of proposed bus stops, an update on the app, and more details on how the on-demand transit system works.

Local transit in Cochrane was approved in 2018 as part of the 2019-2021 budget. The system was developed as an 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.

“The brand we unveiled today is modern and reflects Cochrane’s character,” added Genung.

COLT buses will be on the road in Cochrane this fall.

The Town Trade Show booth is located at the far end of the curling rink at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre. Information is also available on ridecolt.ca.
