COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES -

ETS Service to Eaux Claires Transit Centre (D. Loken)

 

 

 

The ETS Eaux Claires Transit Centre at 97 Street and 157 Avenue was intended to expand the transit system to provide easier access and greater service for Edmontonians. My office has been advised that the realignment of previous routes, which has meant in many cases there has been an increase in the number of bus transers required to arrive at destinations and has thus resulted in enefficiences and a decrease in the quality of service provided to ETS patrons.
Will Administration provide the business case analysis related to the development of the Eaux Claires Transit Centre, along with information on both efficiencies and inefficiencies which may have been created by the realignment.
