Everybody Rides program

Strathcona County believes that everyone should have access to transportation. In partnership with Family and Community Services, a program has been implemented to assist qualified residents in reducing the cost of accessing Strathcona County Transit.

The Everybody Rides program improves access to transit services for residents who have limited income. Qualifying applicants can purchase one conventional or Mobility Bus adult monthly commuter or local pass per month for each registered member of the household at a discounted rate.
