ITE Northern Alberta March Luncheon: Edmonton’s Transit Priority Measures Study

March 6, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The City of Edmonton is currently completing a Bus Network Redesign based on the 2017 Transit Strategy. In addition to creating a new network, the Strategy also call for the implementation of Transit Priority Measures in congested areas to improve service reliability and operating speeds. The City retained IBI Group to study locations where Transit Priority Measures could be applied.

The study is now nearing completion, and this presentation will focus on how and why the locations were identified. The study considered recent ETS operational data to identify existing challenges, looked at the proposed bus network to assess how these issues could impact future operations, and looked into the near-term future to confirm locations with persistent operational challenges.

The technical evaluation resulted in an initial set of nearly thirty segments across the City. A set of evaluation criteria and implementation considerations was applied in a workshop setting with City staff, and from that process, a shortlist was identified. The current step (underway) is the development of the measures for the shortlist locations.
