Sturgeon County Votes to Explore the Benefits of Regional Transit Services

News Release - March 10, 2020

Sturgeon County, AB - Sturgeon County Council voted in favour of accepting the Regional Transit Services Commission’s opportunity to further explore the potential benefits from regional integrated transit services Council will re-examine Sturgeon County’s participation once the RTSC’s business case is reworked to reflect confirmed regional membership based on the viability of service delivery and the financial model.

“While public transit is not a service currently provided to County residents, we’re committed to working collaboratively with our municipal partners to ensure a regional integrated transit service model encompasses our future public transit needs,” said Mayor Alanna Hnatiw.

Municipalities who choose to join will jointly sponsor a proposal to the Government of Alberta to establish the Commission in Provincial Regulation. Public engagement activities will be undertaken at that time. The details of the commission’s governance, municipal autonomy, financial impacts and servicing are expected to be addressed in the next phase of the project. The Government of Alberta must approve the new Commission before it can begin operation, tentatively by 2022.

The 13 member municipalities of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB) considering the RTSC are the City of Beaumont, the Town of Devon, the City of Edmonton, the City of Fort Saskatchewan, the City of Leduc, Leduc County, the Town of Morinville, Parkland County, the City of Spruce Grove, the City of St. Albert, the Town of Stony Plain, Strathcona County and Sturgeon County.

The RTSC transition team’s final report, which examined the overall feasibility of an integrated-service approach, was presented to Council on January 28, 2020. For more information and to view the report “Accelerating Transit in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region”, visit www.sturgeoncounty.ca/RTSC
