Transit Report, First Km Last Km Report - UPDATE

The City released a report on their plans for servicing neighbourhoods including Wedgewood that are facing the loss of bus service in the new Transit Network Plan. The following is a link to the First Km Last Km Transit Challenge Report.

The report was presented to City Council on January 15, 2019 and the recommendation approved was to have Administration bring a report back to the Committee in November 2019 that includes:

1.    an analysis and redeployment options of community transit service resources to identify possible transit solutions for neighbourhoods.

2.    an additional analysis of neighbourhoods with walking distances greater than a minimum of 600-800 meters to a transit bus stop or facility.

3.    a response to the recommendations presented in the January 15, 2019, Edmonton Transit Services Advisory Board report CR_6413.

4.    options that would increase the number of communities that can be served by the various first km/last km options.

The Wedgewood Transit Committee continues to work with other neighbourhoods impacted and will continue to advocate for regular service for our community. Updates will be posted to the website.
