Call for Input: Provincial transit engagement

Provincial transit engagement
29 Apr 2016

From the Alberta Government website:

Have your say about Alberta’s new provincial transit strategy.

As Alberta’s economy and population grows, public transportation provides safe, accessible, affordable and environmentally sustainable transportation options to connect Albertans to work, recreation, services and each other.

The Alberta government is committed to hearing about the transportation needs of Albertans living in rural and urban communities across the province. This information will help provide a better understanding of the varying public transportation issues, challenges and opportunities.

Feedback will be accepted until April 29, 2016.

How to get involved

Albertans and transportation stakeholders can provide input on the future of public transportation in our province.


Albertans are invited to provide input through an online survey.

Transportation stakeholders

Municipalities, private industry, labour and social advocacy groups, Indigenous communities and other stakeholders can provide feedback through detailed workbooks.

How your input will be used

This input will help inform the development of a provincial transit strategy, and criteria for future funding in support of municipal transit initiatives and rural bus services.

Once the engagement process has concluded in April 2016, the funding program criteria and a provincial transit strategy will be drafted in collaboration with cross-ministry partners. An announcement regarding the program criteria is targeted for summer 2016.

A provincial strategy will also support Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan goals, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, by providing a framework for provincial policies and programs for public transportation.
