Eaux Claires Transit Station - Edmonton
Thanks in part to the MSI program, the City of Edmonton officially opened the Eaux Claires Transit Centre at 97 Street and 157 Avenue.
"We are pleased that funding from the Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) will allow the City of Edmonton to provide its residents with a sustainable public transit alternative that will help increase transit ridership and reduce traffic congestion,” said Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Hector Goudreau. “Constructing additional public transit options will help foster Alberta’s growth in a responsible, environmentally-conscious way.”
“Transit centres like this new one, help to complete our overall system, providing the connection points in key locations to make it easier for people to access our growing system and to leave their cars behind,“ said Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel. “Convenient connectivity is an essential part of an effective service and City Council is committed to growing the strength and accessibility of our system every year, all across Edmonton.”
The building is designed to complement the surrounding neighbourhoods and features clear glass walls. A public washroom, security cameras, emergency phones and 17 bus bays provide a safe and comfortable environment for customers. With a 300-space park-and-ride, this transit centre is an ideal site from which to commute directly into downtown.
