    Edmonton’s neighbours ready to sign on to create regional transit commission

    The number of communities that want to be part of a proposed regional transit commission for the Edmonton area is set to grow.

    Local mayors have confirmed to Global News that what started as a partnership between Edmonton and St. Albert will soon also include Parkland County, the Town of Morinville, the City of Leduc and others.

    On June 26, Parkland County councillors voted in favour of joining the commission, according to Mayor Rod Shaigec.

    The death of Greyhound has likely made this an imperative.

      Greyhound had extremely little to nothing to do with this.
      My hope is that you can finally get rid of the anger in your heart, and fill it with peace, compassion, understanding, and a desire to uplift rather than suppress.

      After all, we are all together on this home, this pale blue dot, the "only home we've ever known.”

        I agree; i think it is just a matter of organic growth that is bursting at the seams hence this ptagmatic move. All municipalities surrounding Edmonton has become one with the city.

            Edmonton is a little easier to get around with the Anthony Henday ring road complete.
