Local municipalities launch 2A South Regional Transit
Communities of Innisfail, Penhold, and Springbrook now connected by transit thanks to pilot project.
Representatives from the Government of Alberta, Red Deer County, Town of Innisfail, Town of Penhold, and the City of Red Deer are pleased to announce the launch of a new pilot project for regional transit service. The service, known as 2A South Regional Transit, connects residents in these communities with various locations in the region.
The project is a collaborative effort between the partner municipalities and the province. The Government of Alberta provided $700,000 in funding from the Rural Transportation Pilot Project program to help launch this transit service. 2A South Regional Transit will connect with Red Deer Transit at the Bower Mall bus stop. This means residents from these communities can connect with multiple Red Deer Transit routes using one main connection.
Anyone interested in trying 2A South Regional Transit is encouraged to take advantage of free rides during the first month of operations. After January, fares will be priced at $5.00 per trip.
According to Red Deer County Community Services Manager Jo-Ann Symington, “The 2A South Regional Transit project will offer tremendous mobility for those who do not drive – or choose not to drive – to connect with the people and places that matter to them. This pilot project will serve as a real-time test of the demand for ongoing transit from these communities.

A lot of work went into catching this offender and I am, thankful that no one was hurt during the incident. This demonstrates the importance, effectiveness and dedication from our members. Three Hills RCMP remains fully committed in building safer communities by working in partnership with our community as well as through investigative and enforcement efforts to achieve this goal.
