Accessible Transportation

Sunshine Bus Now Available for Public Booking!

A growing number of older adults and people with mobility issues in the Town of Olds who want to live in their own homes face barriers to accessing the non-medical services they need to live independently in the community, including accessible and affordable transportation. Older adults or those with mobility issues have priority booking status and can book the bus three days or more in advance of day needed to ensure time slot availability.    

We also understand that there is a need for affordable transportation in our community and have taken steps to allow the Sunshine Bus to be booked by the public. We are now accepting public bookings.
