Red Deer Transit will be providing special Park & Ride service for Canada Day Celebrations at the Collicutt Centre on July 1.

The Park & Ride location is at the Memorial Centre parking lot at 4214-58 St.

Service will run on a 15-minute frequency throughout the day. The City of Red Deer encourages residents to use the Park & Ride service or take regular holiday transit service to minimize parking issues at the Collicutt Centre.

One-way Park & Ride fares are in effect.

Riders are asked to have the exact change ready when boarding as the bus drivers do not carry or make change. Transit passes, tickets or coupons are not valid for this special service.

The following fares apply – adult (18 to 64 years) $1;
youth (6 to 17 years) $.50; 
seniors (65 years and older) $.50; children five years and younger ride for free.

For more information on the Park & Ride service or regular holiday service, call Red Deer Transit Customer Service at 403-342-8225, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding holidays.

Also, it wouldn’t be a Canada Day celebration without fireworks, and the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society has secured a new location for the display to happen.

Fireworks will be set off from the Westerner Park racetrack grandstand on Monday, July 1 at 11:30 p.m. Gates at Westerner Park will open at 10:30 p.m. and will close at 12:30 a.m.

There will be no charge for parking and public washrooms are available in Agricentre West. Residents are reminded that there is no open liquor permitted on site for this event.

Since there is ample parking at Westerner Park, there will be no Park & Ride service offered from the Collicutt Centre to Westerner Park for the fireworks display.

The City of Red Deer would like to thank the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society and Westerner Park for their efforts and cooperation in making Canada Day special for Red Deerians.

For more information on the Canada Day celebrations, call the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society at 403-346-0055 or visit The City’s website at www.reddeer.ca.
