Leduc Transit expanding further into Leduc County
Leduc region commuters will see expanded service on May 1, when a number of Leduc Transit improvements take effect.
The most notable of these changes is the extension of Route 1, which transports commuters from Leduc to Edmonton, with stops in Nisku. This route will now serve more residents and businesses by travelling further north into Nisku and Royal Oaks subdivision before heading onward to Century Park and Leduc.
To offer Nisku commuters a more direct means of transportation, Leduc Transit has also added a new route. Route 5 is a dedicated Nisku loop designed to serve ridership between Airport Road and 25 Avenue. Previously part of Route 1, the Nisku loop has been allotted its own route for faster, more efficient commute times.
“We wanted to create a more user-friendly service that covers more area,” says Manager of Public Transportation, Kevin Wenzel. “The goal is to get people where they’re going, quicker.”
Smaller changes to routes 2, 3 and 4 include the relocation of select bus stops to decrease roadway congestion and increase scheduling efficiency.
Leduc Transit is an inter-municipal partnership between the City of Leduc and Leduc County that connects Leduc and Nisku, with stops at the Edmonton International Airport and Century Park LRT Station in south Edmonton. Established in 2014, Leduc Transit moves an average of 70,000 riders annually between Leduc, Nisku and Edmonton. With ridership steadily increasing each year, Leduc Transit continues to grow to connect communities within the region.
