On-demand transit coming to 2 north Calgary communities

via CBC News

Residents in two Calgary communities without traditional bus service will soon be able to request a ride — on demand.

Starting May 24, residents in Livingston and Carrington can use the free Calgary Transit On Demand app to book a van that will pick them up from any location in those neighbourhoods, and take them to the Northe Pointe transit hub.

Rides will cost the same as any Calgary Transit fare — $3.40 per adult and $2.35 for youth six to 17 — and transfers will be given to riders switching to another bus. The service will be free for the first three days to give riders a chance to try it out.
