Camrose Area Rideshare

The City of Camrose's Rural Transportation two-year pilot project, “Camrose Area Rideshare,” (funded by the Government of Alberta) launched on November 6, 2019. Previously known as “Camrose Carpool,” Camrose Area Rideshare was a web-based carpooling program with a phone-in option that was designed to provide local and rural residents access to public transportation while also providing information to help address gaps in the transit system.

However, due to underutilization and COVID-19, the decision was made to suspend the program indefinitely.

Camrose Community Bus

The following steps are being taken to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus:

  • - The drivers will not touch riders’ walkers, groceries, etc.
  • - The bus will be used to only pick up riders that are able, independent riders. If someone requires assistance, please call the handivan directly or the driver will deploy a handivan to come pick up this rider.
  • - Drivers will encourage riders to practice social distancing by leaving seats in between each other.
  • - The bus will not run at full capacity. If every other seat is being used, the driver may deploy another bus to come pick up additional riders.
  • - Drivers have the right to refuse someone getting on if they are visibly ill.
  • - Buses will be switched out every other day so that they can be thoroughly cleaned.
  • - An exact change “cash-only” system will be implemented so that drivers do not have to handle, sell, and clean bus passes (however, we will still accept passes people currently have).​

Any questions should be directed to the Rose City Handivan Society at 780.672.8777

Tickets can also be purchased at Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre or Red Arrow Edmonton South.

Taxi Tokens
The Taxi Token Program provides transit options to those with financial difficulties. Taxis in Camrose cost about $8.00 a ride. The taxi tokens give the rider a $4.00 discount on the taxi or handi-van fare therefore lowering the cost to what bus fares are in other cities. Currently Armand's, Rose City, and the Rose City Handi-van accept tokens. Taxi drivers are not obligated to accept the tokens, so we're aware that the system still has some problems.
