Changes are coming to transportation in Morinville.
The Community Bus Link Service is launching a pilot program to extend service to St. Albert starting on July 2.
The new service is scheduled to run two times daily. It will go every Monday from July 2 to August 27 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Each round trip has a scheduled pick up and drop off times and locations.
“The new weekly Community Bus Link Service will give all residents of Morinville a cost-effective opportunity to access services we do not currently have in town,” said Tyler Edworthy, the sport and recreation coordinator for the town. “Launching this pilot program in the summer, we hope to identify and promote the use of this service to a more diverse group of the community, including young families and youth that would otherwise not have access to the city.”
The bus is operated by the Town of Morinville and features top grab handles on the top of the seats, retractable seat belts, heater and air conditioner systems, an oversized rear luggage compartment, shelves and inverter and power outlets to each passenger seat.
Round trip cost is $8 for adults, $6 for ages 17 and under and $6 for seniors. Those under 14 years of age require an adult with them to ride the bus.
Tickets are available at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre.
