Frequently Asked Questions

A pilot program from Nov. 1 2015 - Nov. 1 2016 allows BOLT monthly regional pass holders to transfer to Red Deer Transit Route 10 to access Red Deer Hospital, Red Deer College, & Bower Mall at no extra cost.

BOLT Transit now has automated fare boxes on the buses and reloadable cards have replaced the previous paper passes. Riders must attain an original card from Transit Customer Service at the Sorensen Station in downtown Red Deer between 8 am - 4:30 pm Mon to Fri.

Get your reloadable card before Feb. 12, 2016 and the $5 card fee will be waived. This fee allows riders to register their card, so it can be canceled & the balance transferred if the card is misplaced.

In the near future riders will be able to reload their cards each month at:
Blackfalds - Abbey Centre
Lacombe - Mary C. Moore Library
Red Deer - Sorensen Station & City Hall

Visit www.reddeer.ca/transit or call 403.342.8225 for more information on the new reloadable card system.

Details on CNIB or Attendant ID cards can be found at www.reddeer.ca/city-services/transit

Centennial Park Update

CENTENNIAL POND LOWERING - NOTICE: The Town is lowering the water level at Centennial Pond temporarily to allow the stumps to be removed. Please use CAUTION around construction crews in the area during month of September.

Starting September 19, 2013, Crews will be working in Centennial Pond this week and next week removing stumps and deadfall along the north side of the pond. Residents using the pond must obey signage and watch for heavy equipment in the area. We appreciate the patience of residents and visitors during the Centennial Park/Pond upgrades.

The new playground equipment on the northeast end of the park has been installed and work is ongoing.

The developer has installed the majority of the large storm water lift station and forcemain along the east side of the pond to control water levels and will be fixing the surface work and installing the underground pumps at the end of the month.

Cutting down and removing the visible portion of the cattails in the wet areas including the cattails in the pond, around the pond and on the west side opposite the pathway is 90 percent completed, the contractor will come back in September to finish around the edges of the pond. The west portion of the low lying wet area (west of the pathway) has been clean up and is being dried out to ensure no cattails will grow in the future, topsoil to be placed in September.

The Town has been lowering the pond and the contractor was scheduled to be removing the deadfall trees and stumps this week along the north section of the pond, but due to birds nesting in the area this work has been re-scheduled to September 9th based on the Biologist's report and the migratory bird act.

A portion of the existing asphalt path from the bridge on the south side to the east will be replaced and the landscaping features will be constructed at this time as well. These features include new grass, trees, shrubs, bat and small bird areas and defined nesting areas.


A public information session was held on March 6th, 2013, where information was presented with a focus on the rehabilitation and enhancement work happening this year at the park, as well as potential future development in the park.
