BOLT Transit

BOLT Regional Public Transit provides service to Blackfalds, Lacombe and Red Deer Monday through Friday. BOLT monthly regional card holders may transfer to Red Deer Transit Route 10 to access Red Deer Hospital, Red Deer College, and Bower Mall at no extra cost!

Buses have automated fare boxes. Riders use a re-loadable fare card or exact cash amounts, as drivers can't make change.

Riders must attain their original fare card from Red Deer Transit at Sorensen Station between 8 am - 4:30 pm Mon to Fri. An initial $5.00 fee allows riders to register their card, so it can be cancelled and the card balance can be transferred, if the card is misplaced.

Riders may reload their cards each month at:
Blackfalds - Abbey Centre
Lacombe - Mary C. Moore Library
Red Deer - Sorensen Station & City Hall
