This round of engagement focused on better understanding people’s priorities in terms of how we design the first four proposed non-LRT (bus-based) mass transit corridors. Opportunity to provide feedback on a fifth corridor planned to run along Whyte Avenue is being scheduled for early February 2023 as part of the Old Strathcona Public Realm project engagement.
The next step is for the City to use the feedback, along with policy and technical considerations, to develop the route alignment, station location and basic street configuration options for each of the corridors. These options are targeted to be presented to Council in fall 2023.
Building off the Mass Transit: Planning for 1.25 Million People project, implementation will focus on going into the next level of detail for the mass transit network for 1.25 million people. These details include confirming mass transit route alignments and outlining, at a high level, how the streets with mass transit might look.
The current mass transit network includes LRT as the foundation. This project includes planning the bus mass transit routes to supplement the LRT network, creating a city-wide mass transit network. Local bus service will be unchanged as a result of this project, except in cases where the local bus service is redundant with the mass transit network.
As part of this project, there will be opportunities for Edmontonians to share their experiences and perspectives. To learn more about what’s been done and what’s coming up, visit the project engagement page.
