Rocky View Regional Handibus Society (RVRHS) will continue service to Crossfield until at least June 30.

In an email to Rocky View Weekly RVRHS General Manager Paul Siller said the board moved to extend the deadline to receive the full fee for the service in the town from Feb. 28 to June 30, after receiving a letter from Crossfield council.

The letter, dated March 10, highlights the Town’s collaboration with area service groups to raise funds to accommodate the RVRHS new per capita fee schedule that resulted in a $9,800 increase from the $5,000 Crossfield paid in 2013.

The per capita rate RVRHS is asking for in 2014 is $5.20, which would put Crossfield’s contribution at about $14,800 based on the population results from the 2011 Census.

The city’s handi-bus service is pushing the limits on weekday mornings. But some riders can use conventional transit in warmer times of the year.

And some are being taught to make that switch, city council learned Monday.

“No show” passengers and last-minute cancellations are also taxing the system, reported transit manager Audra McKinley.

Lethbridge Transit runs 18 specially equipped vans during rush hours, she told council’s Community Issues Committee.

Almost all the rush hour Access-a-Ride passengers are “subscription” customers, she said. There’s little space left for occasional “demand” bookings.
