RideCo Powers Canada's First City-Wide On-Demand Bus System
About the Project
- Short for Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit, COLT will allow residents to request a bus at one of 152 stops in the community northwest of Calgary
- Other communities have implemented buses on demand but Cochrane Mayor, Jeff Genung says Cochrane is the first to make it system wide

— Jeff Genung, Mayor of Cochrane
