Red Deer Transit Network Improvements

Improvements identified through public engagement create flexibility and convenience for public transit users in Red Deer, Alberta.

CITY OF RED DEER (2019-2021)

WATT’s transportation team worked with the City of Red Deer to develop an overarching transit plan to fundamentally restructure the city’s local and regional transit network to align with their Multi-Modal Transportation Plan and a major new transit corridor envisioned for Gaetz Avenue (their community’s main spine). Within and complementing that, the team undertook analysis, modelling and design work to determine the transit priority infrastructure improvements and sample station layouts for the new corridor.

The proposed system changes are based on analysis, best practices, and direct feedback that was heard through engagement with transit staff, customers and citizens in multiple phases over the past year.

WATT then supported the City with implementing the system-wide changes including the new routes and schedules. Over several months, transit staff and the public were provided with the opportunity to review the detailed draft transit system materials,  followed by the actual implementation of the realigned transit route network. The project was completed in 2020.
