The City of Red Deer is offering youth unlimited rides on Red Deer Transit and unlimited access to all City recreation facilities all summer with the Rip ‘N Rec Summer Pass

This is the second year the City has offered the promotion which brings together two of our most popular services, Recreation and Transit. For only $50 youth age six to 17 can purchase a Rip ‘N Rec Summer Pass that provides them unlimited access to drop-in activities from swimming, to fitness classes and gymnasium sports and the means to get there.

“The Rip ‘n Rec Summer Pass is intended to provide youth with some healthy ways to spend their time this summer and the ride to get there,” said Barb McKee, Recreation Superintendent. “It allows youth access to all four City recreation centres including the outdoor pool all summer long. This is just one more way we provide low and no cost options for everyone in Red Deer to get out, get active and have fun.”

“We are really happy to work with the Recreation section to make this pass a reality. We know that introducing youth to using public transit at an early age encourages lifelong ridership,” said Trever Sparrow, Red Deer Transit Superintendent of Conventional Services “With this pass teens are able to hop on transit to get to their favourite places, like the splash park, swimming pool or even the mall. The Rip ‘N Rec pass provides parents with an affordable way for teens to travel around town during the summer.”

The Rip ‘N Rec Pass can be purchased at any City recreation facility:

  • Collicutt Centre (3031 - 30 Avenue)
  • G.H. Dawe Community Centre (56 Holt Street)
  • Michener Aquatic Centre (51A Street and 38 Avenue)
  • Recreation Centre (4501 - 47A Avenue)

The Pass is valid until September 3, 2018.
