The Town has been working hard to bring transit opportunities to Devon and provide residents with a new option for connecting with employment opportunities, post-secondary education or shopping and entertainment in the Edmonton area.
In January 2020, Town of Devon Council voted to join a Regional Transit Services Commission, a group of Edmonton Metropolitan Region municipalities with a similar goal – to find affordable and efficient transit for their communities.
In January 2021, this Commission received approval from the Government of Alberta to legally form. The municipalities included in the newly formed Edmonton Metropolitan Transit Services Commission (EMTSC) include Devon, Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Beaumont, Leduc, St. Albert, and Fort Saskatchewan. The EMTSC is currently aiming to bring a regional transit model that would service all eight municipalities by the fall of 2022.
In the meantime, the Town is working with the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) to bridge this gap and offer transit for Devon residents this as early as this summer.
The Town is currently working with ETS on a pilot project to determine a route from Devon to the City of Edmonton that best suits the community's transit needs. There will be no charge during the pilot period to ride from Devon to the City and back, however ETS fares in Edmonton will apply for additional transit (LRT, busses to additional destinations).
Two routes are being explored and we need your feedback to determine which would be the most optimal for residents.
*Note: The pilot will run for 18 months and then will be re-evaluated to determine the level of service for the community.
Please take a minute to fill out our short survey and help us plan the best route to suit Devon’s needs. All results with go to Town Council to inform the final details for Devon’s ETS pilot this summer.
The survey will remain open until Monday, June 28 at 11:59 p.m. and results will go to Town Council in July.
