Cochrane residents can start riding COLT on Monday when the service officially launches.

The COLT app opens at 8am Monday so residents can start booking rides; service starts at 10am on launch day.

COLT: Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit is Cochrane’s bold new transit system, designed specifically for our community. COLT uses technology to provide responsive on-demand service — where and when Cochranites want it.

COLT has four buses ready to roll and is ideal for getting to local appointments, activities and destinations. Because the service is completely on demand, there’s no waiting at a stop. Use the app to request a ride for a specific day and time and select your starting and ending point. COLT sends a text message when your bus is on the way!

The Ride COLT app has been available for download since September 23.

COLT is free to ride until the end of the year so service can be monitored and adjusted if required. After launch day, buses run Monday to Friday from 6am-8pm and Saturdays from 9am-3pm. There is no service on Sundays.

Local transit in Cochrane was approved in 2018 as part of the 2019-2021 budget. The system was developed as an on-demand stop-to-stop service after extensive community consultation.

Buses in Cochrane serve local destinations initially, but plans are underway to add regional destinations like Crowfoot LRT station and post-secondary institutions in Calgary.
