On June 1, 2020 the Regional Transit Services Commission Transition Team released the Accelerating Transit in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region: Building a Regional Transit Services Commission Addendum.
The addendum outlines updated routes and figures included in the Regional Transit Services Commission (RTSC) business case. These revisions reflect the removal of services previously incorporated to serve Strathcona County, Leduc County and Sturgeon County. Like the original report, the addendum demonstrates the viability of a Commission in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region based on which municipalities have chosen to participate.
In January, 2020 the Regional Transit Commission Transition Task Force released Accelerating Transit in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region: Building a Regional Transit Services Commission (24.5MB).
This business case was considered by municipal councils around the region and voting on participation in the new Commission took place in February and March 2020.
The Government of Alberta awarded the City of Edmonton and City of St. Albert a $3.7 million Community Partnership Grant, as the initial signatories, to work with the region to analyze the feasibility of a potential Transit Commission.
In September 2017, the City of Edmonton and City of St. Albert Councils signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to begin taking steps to develop a Regional Transit Services Commission.
Eleven Edmonton Metropolitan Region communities joined in October 2018, including . Beaumont, Devon, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, Leduc County, Morinville, Parkland County, Spruce Grove, Strathcona County, Stony Plain and Sturgeon County.
