The City of Red Deer would like to remind transit riders that two service changes will have taken effect.

The changes will impact evening transit service after 10 p.m. from Monday to Saturday on Routes 1 through 5 and Routes 7 through 11.

From Monday to Saturday (regular service) the 10:45 p.m. outbound buses departing from Sorensen Station (downtown) will no longer be offered.

Outbound buses will depart every 30 minutes from 6:15 a.m. to 10:15 p.m., and the final outbound buses of the evening will continue to depart from Sorensen Station at 11:15 p.m. Sunday and holiday service is not affected by this change.

For necessary schedule efficiency, adjustments have also been made to arrival times at some evening stops. After 10 p.m., schedule times have been slightly modified on all buses inbound to Sorensen Station (City centre). As well, schedule times have been adjusted on all buses outbound from Sorensen Station on the last departure at 11:15 p.m. These times replace the schedule after 10 p.m. that is currently listed in the 2011-12 Ride Guide. Informational brochures showing the schedule changes are available at Transit Customer Service or online at www.reddeer.ca/transit.

Please note that changes do not affect current route maps; all route maps remain the same. Transit riders may check the Ride Guide for complete route information.
