COLT pilot project

COLT is a five year pilot to gather ride data and make adjustments to improve the service for our community. The service will continue to change and adapt to our community’s needs during the pilot.

If you have feedback on the COLT service, please rate your ride on the app or leave a comment here.

Commuter service

COLT has partnered with Southland’s On-It service to provide an interim regional service between Cochrane, the Brentwood LRT Station and Downtown Calgary. More information on routes, schedules, fares and terms of service can be found here.

This interim regional service will serve as a smaller test for the planned local/regional service integration between COLT and an enhanced On-It regional service. 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.

COLT fleet

Cochrane’s new COLT buses are being built to the Town’s detailed specifications so we can deliver the best service possible to the community. All COLT buses are equipped with an entrance ramp, one wheelchair space, and a bicycle rack. If required, please reserve space for your wheelchair or bicycle when booking.
