Sheep River Shuttle
Our community transportation service connects Black Diamond residents of all ages and abilities to local shopping, services and social outings. The Shuttle also offers regional connection to destinations in the Town of Okotoks.

About the Service
The Sheep River Shuttle is operated through an innovative community partnership between the Town of Black Diamond and the Boys and Girls Club of the Foothills. Operating funding for the Shuttle's first year of service is contributed by the Town, passenger fares, charter service fees and community donations. The Boys and Girls Club administers and operates the service.
