Cold Lake Transit




Cold Lake Transit is provided free of charge by the City of Cold Lake. Fares may be subject to change without notice.

Important information for Cold Lake Transit passengers

COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted across the province on July 1, 2021 as Alberta enters Stage 3 of the "Open for Summer" plan. As mandated by Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health, face coverings are still required on all forms of public transportation, including transit buses, even after the Stage 3 reopening. Complimentary masks and sanitizer are provided at the front door of all Cold Lake Transit buses.

Transit App

Cold Lake Transit's new real-time GPS tracking smartphone app "Transloc" is now operational. Users of the former "Transloc Rider" app will be prompted to download the new "Transloc" app when opening the old app. Riders are encouraged to download the "Transloc" app from the Apple App Store or Android Market to take advantage of the new features and avoid an interruption of service. 

New "Transloc" App:                    "Transloc Rider" app (phased out in Dec. 2020):


Mobility devices and wheelchair accessibility

Passengers are advised that while current Cold Lake Transit buses are wheelchair accessible, it is possible that older, non-accessible buses may need to be swapped in while current buses are undergoing scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. During these times, the City of Cold Lake will notify passengers through the TransLoc Rider App of the bus change. Passengers are encouraged to download this app for the most up-to-date information on Cold Lake Transit. Notices will also be posted on this website and social media when possible. Follow the City of Cold Lake on Facebook and Twitter.

Rules for mobility devices

Mobility devices (eg. electric scooters) are permitted on wheelchair-accessible transit buses provided:

  • The passenger can maneuver into the designated wheelchair space unassisted by the driver or other passengers.

  • The mobility device can be secured using the Q-straint system.

While most mobility devices will fit in the designated space provided, some larger units may find maneuverability difficult. If you are unsure if your device will fit, or if you require more information or have additional questions, call Cold Lake Transit ahead of your planned trip at 780-639-4455. For alternative transportation options, please call Cold Lake and District FCSS at 780-594-4495.

Transit guidelines

  • Be respectful of Transit property and other riders.

  • Food or drinks may not be consumed aboard Transit vehicles unless they are in sealed containers designed for travel.

  • Animals are not allowed on Transit property unless they are used to guide persons with disabilities, or are in a secure cage or kennel.
