On-It Regional Transit Pilot Launches! "On-It Regional Transit - a Calgary Regional Partnership Initiative"
The Town of Black Diamond, working with the Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP), will see public transportation come to our community beginning October 11, 2016. The two-year public transit pilot, called On-It Regional Transit, will also serve Turner Valley, Okotoks and High River. The service will go from Black Diamond to Okotoks and to the Somerset Bridlewood LRT Station in Calgary every morning, with return trips in the afternoon and early evening.
To start, buses will operate Monday to Friday during peak hours, with one route that will offer a local service in Okotoks before departing for the Somerset/Bridlewood LRT station and the other route offering an express service with only 2 stops in Okotoks at the Park 'n Ride locations before departing to the Somerset/Bridlewood LRT station. As this is a pilot, service will be closely monitored after the first year. Services are being provided by Southland Transportation Ltd.
