Transit Governance Review for the Capital Region Board (Edmonton)

Project Description

The Inter-municipal Transit Governance Study and Implementation Plan was developed to support the implementation of the recommended Transit Network Plan. The primary objective of this work was to review the current situation with respect to governance of inter-municipal transit and to develop a strategy for advancing the implementation of the Plan. The secondary objective of the review is to understand and outline the potential opportunities, risks, challenges and limitations that may lie ahead for the approved governance model. Although the intent of the review was not to revisit the recommended model for governing inter-municipal transit, the limitations of the Transit Committee model became apparent through the process and other governance models are explored in further detail. As such, the Committee model was compared and evaluated against other potential models available through the Municipal Act that included a Commission, Inter-municipal Partnership, Controlled Corporation and a Non-profit Corporation.
