For people who live in Okotoks, there is such a thing as a free ride.
The new On-It regional transit, which will start offering free rides in the Foothills region beginning January 6, will operate for free two days a week. It’s a way of introducing the service to Okotoks homeowners who commute to Calgary and other areas in the MD of Foothills.
Riders can check out the service at no charge on Mondays and Fridays. A no-strings-attached way of seeing how comfortable and convenient this new service can be.
The fares for the service depends on the destination. Okotoks to Calgary is $6 each way or $155 a month unlimited rides. Black Diamond, Turner Valley or High River to Calgary is $8 one way or $170 a month unlimited rides.
