Medicine Hat Transit is the municipal public transportation system operated by Medicine Hat, a small city in southeastern Alberta, Canada. Service is available and accessible to all residents of the community, including specialized transit for persons with disabilities; all of the MHT fleet is fully wheelchair-accessible.[1]

History[edit]

In the 1950s local bus service was provided by Blair's Bus Lines, which was superseded by Medicine Hat Transportation Company, until 1972, when city-owned Medicine Hat Transit commenced operation of the current system.[2] Starting in October 2008 Medicine Hat Transit began a transformation, with new routes and schedules and a fleet makeover and rebranding.[3]

Services[edit]

Peak-service bus routes are scheduled to operate on weekdays between 6:45 am and 6:45 pm. Non-peak routes extend operations until 10:45 pm on weekdays and all day Saturday, with Sunday service 8:15 am– 7:15pm & holiday service provided between 10:15 am and 6:15 pm.

Specialized paratransit is available for people who can't use regular transit, a service for which they must be registered. Hours of operation are Monday to Saturday between 6:45 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and all trips must be booked the day before.
