Provide your input on transit network improvements

An online survey is now open for residents to provide input as The City develops a plan for transit network improvements.  

The survey is part of the engagement phase of the Transit Network Improvement Project. Building on past work, including the Integrated Movement Study, the Mobility Playbook and the Multimodal Transportation Plan, the goal of the project is to ensure transit riders have access to frequent, connected and quality transit service that acknowledges the ever growing and diverse needs of transit riders within the central Alberta region today and in the future. 

“This project is about reshaping transit to best meet the needs of Red Deerians and transit riders as our city and our region grows and changes in the coming years,” said George Penny, Transit Manager. “Based on previous engagement on transportation and mobility, we determined that quality, connection, comfort and safety are what matter most to citizens. But before we move forward with major transit network improvements, we want to verify if that still rings true today.”

The data collected in the survey will be used to help inform a new transit plan for Red Deer. The plan will consider alternatives for how, where and why transit is routed in Red Deer and how Red Deerians experience transit in our city. As the plan is developed, further citizen engagement will continue to ensure it reflects what we’ve heard throughout the project. 

The survey is open to all citizens at reddeer.ca/surveys and will be open until August 6. In the coming weeks, City staff will also be conducting surveys on Transit buses.
