Reloading MyRide cards for Transit customers just got easier

The transit fare system that uses prepaid, reloadable cards arrived in Red Deer nearly a year ago and starting today, residents will be able to reload their MyRide cards at any City of Red Deer recreation facility, making Transit easier and more convenient.

“We are happy to provide this increased service to our riders,” said Steve Parkin, Transit Operations Superintendent. “Adding these additional reload stations to our recreation centres increases convenience for Transit customers, particularly in the south east area of the city.”

Four new reload stations were installed today at the Collicutt Centre, GH Dawe Community Centre, Recreation Centre and Michener Centre. These are in addition to the retail outlets already providing this service.

“We know riders visit our recreation facilities and having reload stations where they go makes good sense,” said Parkin. “This is an excellent addition to our reload stations, and we hope customers continue to see the benefits of using the MyRide cards.”

Customers first MyRide cards must be purchased at Transit Customer Service in Sorenson Station Terminal downtown or City Hall, and then they can use any of several reload stations around the city to reload the cards.
