Edmonton’s Transit Strategy

February 7, 2018 NACITE Luncheon

Presented by Sarah Feldman

 

NACITE welcomes Sarah Feldman, Director of Planning and Scheduling for Edmonton Transit Service, to discuss Edmonton’s Transit Strategy. Edmonton City Council approved a new Transit Strategy in 2017. One of the five pillars of the Strategy is the creation of a market responsive transit network design. The new transit network consists of several different service types, each with its own purpose and corresponding level of service. Sarah will present the draft network redesign, showing how the different route types work together to provide service based on the principles of the Transit Strategy and discussing the trade-offs that were considered.
