BOLT Transit

Bolt Transit Temporary Route Changes

Due to the Waghorn Street Repaving Project, the BOLT transit stops along East Avenue and Waghorn Street will be relocated to along Broadway Avenue from July 9 - August 1.  

Temporary stops will be placed in front of Broadway Liquor (north bound) and Granden Auto (south bound). Upon completion of construction, BOLT routes will return to their previous locations.

BOLT Regional Public Transit provides service to Blackfalds, Lacombe and Red Deer Monday-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 fare card from Red Deer Transit at Sorensen Station between 8 am - 4:30 pm Mon to Fri. A $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 then reload their cards each month at:
Blackfalds - Abbey Centre
Lacombe - Mary C. Moore Library
Red Deer - Sorensen Station & City Hall
