To help support the community with self-isolation during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Okotoks Transit will be assisting local grocery stores with deliveries of groceries within the transit service area.
“Supporting our community is always a priority for Okotoks Town Council and we are pleased to be able to use Okotoks Transit for this important service. We are deeply committed to assisting Okotoks residents during these challenging times,” said Mayor Bill Robertson.
Okotoks Transit has reached out to local stores; currently Sobeys and Save on Foods are set up to take advantage of the delivery service. If other local stores are interested in participating, they can submit an online inquiry at www.okotokstransit.ca.
This temporary service will be co-ordinated between the grocery store and Okotoks Transit; grocery delivery will operate in a separate vehicle from passenger transit.
For information on ordering the delivery service, please contact the respective stores:
Sobeys: General Inquiries – 403-938-3439; Deliveries – 403-938-4043; SobeysOkotoks.com
Save on Foods: 587-757-8966
Passenger transit is the primary purpose of Okotoks Transit and grocery delivery will be provided without compromising passenger needs. Should there be an increased demand for passenger transit over the coming weeks, this will take priority over grocery deliveries.
The Town has also negotiated a discounted rate of $10 per trip with Town Taxi, which provides the Town’s Community Access Program, for collecting and delivering groceries. The taxi service applies within both developed and annexed boundaries of Okotoks to assist with self-isolation. Arrangements and payment for this delivery service must be made directly with Town Taxi (403-975-2233) and the respective store that individuals are ordering the groceries from. Other local taxi services may also be willing to assist with grocery deliveries; please contact them directly.
