Community Access System (busing)

Lac La Biche County's Community Access System is a busing service that helps people get around our community. Our aim is to provide improved access to healthcare, shopping, educational services, and recreational activities.

Community Access Bus Service

The Community Access Bus Service is a shared-ride, curb-to-curb transportation service to take individuals and families to and from health appointments, local shopping, or coffee with friends.

Community Access Paratransit Bus Service

The Community Access Paratransit Service is available to seniors and people with disabilities travelling within the County. Paratransit provides affordable door-to-door transportation, helping people run errands, access medical care and attend social events. Click here to read the County’s Paratransit Policy.

The Paratransit bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift. If a user requires a support attendant, there is no charge for the attendant. After registering, users are billed monthly for the trips they have taken.
