Cochrane Commuter Service

Interim Regional Service

NOTICE: The Interim Regional Service to the Brentwood LRT station and Downtown Calgary will be suspended for December 2020.

Due to the recent COVID-19 work from home guidelines, we have seen a significant drop in demand for the service. The Town and Southland Transportation will be working together to assess demand for the service on a monthly basis, and the Interim Regional Service will resume once the demand for the service is high enough to make the service viable.

In the meantime, the Town and Southland will continue to work on the local COLT and regional On-It service integration. The integration is planned to have four local fixed schedule COLT routes, and an enhanced On-It regional service that would take people to/from Calgary on the following regional routes:

  • Cochrane Transit Hub (360 Railway St. W.) to Brentwood LRT Station/UofC
  • Cochrane Transit Hub to SAIT and Downtown Calgary
  • Cochrane Transit Hub to Foothills Hospital and –Downtown Calgary
  •  Potential summer route to Banff

An official launch date for this integrated service has been postponed due to COVID-19. We will be reaching out to the community for feedback in early 2021.
