Program offers free transit for ACCESS users | Acv - Local News | Airdrie City View: "Airdrie City council voted unanimously in favour of providing free local public transit to ACCESS Airdrie clients.

Effective immediately, the approximately 210 clients, who have a range of physical and cognitive disabilities, will be able to more easily access city businesses and services.

“When you look at other communities in Alberta, they really recognize the importance of opening up transit alternatives to their residents,” said Chris MacIsaac, transit coordinator with the City of Airdrie.

“(For) ACCESS Airdrie clients, their need for transportation is higher than the average resident. It provides them with that much more accessibility out into the community.”"
