Crestline Coach Ltd., a Saskatchewan company founded in 1975 and supplies busses nationwide, has honored Leduc Transit for providing safe, reliable and comfortable transportation to the citizens of the City of Leduc and Leduc County by bestowing on Leduc Transit it’s Spotlight on Success award.
This award is part of Crestline’s 40th anniversary and is a brand new initiative designed to highlight the accomplishments of the businesses they serve.
In September 2014, Leduc County and the City of Leduc expanded the existing single-route service to form Leduc Transit. Today with one commuter route, three local routes and 112 bus stop locations connecting Leduc, Nisku, the Edmonton International Airport and Edmonton the ridership has continued to increase.
To meet the increasing needs Leduc City recently announced that the transit system has expanded into the Meadowview Park and Robinson residual areas as of July 6. New stops along Meadowview Boulevard, Coady Boulevard, and C.W. Gaetz Road have been added before the buses continue back on Black Gold Drive via Rolleyview Road. The Southfork residential subdivision has also had some changes to accommodate the bus route along Southfork Drive and Sheppard Boulevard.
A number of bus stops are no longer being used by Route 4; However, they will be reserved for future expansion. These stops include 136, 167, 168, 172, 173 and 178.
Leduc Transit is also responsible for the operation of Leduc Assisted Transportation Service (LATS), which has actively served the community since 2007. LATS provides transportation for seniors and individuals with physical and/or cognitive disabilities, who require transportation to programs, employment opportunities, medical appointments and other social outings.
Crestline’s Marketing Manager, Vanessa Bomboir was impressed “knowing that LATS is continually thinking of ways to engage its community with the intention of enhancing riders’ lives and wellbeing”
The Leduc Transit System is the result of the collaboration between the City of Leduc and the County of Leduc and the financial assistance from the Alberta Transportation’s Green Transit Incentives Program (green TRIP) in bring a first class quality transit system to the area.
