The goal is to be operational by 2020
Transit users in the Edmonton Metro Region are a step closer to faster services between all 13 communities thanks to the Memorandum of Understanding signed this week.
The MOU outlines how the Edmonton Metropoliatan Region partners will voluntarily work together to set up and operate inter-municipal routes, leaving local service with existing transit agencies.
Mayor of Stony Plain William Choy hopes to have the inter-municipal transit system operating by late 2019.
The Government of Albert has provided 3.7 million dollars to support behind the scenes work to set up the commission with the goal being operational after 2020.
