Bus stop upgrades

Twenty-four bus stops in Spruce Grove, most of which are currently located on grass, will be paved to ensure public safety and comfort. Additionally, two bus shelters and four bike racks will be installed to support multi-mode transit, allowing riders who are not currently within walking distance of a bus stop the opportunity to ride their bike and securely leave it at the bus stop. These upgrades will increase transit accessibility for all passengers. Work is anticipated to start in the summer of 2017 and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018. These bus stop upgrades are being funded through a partnership involving the Government of Canada, the Province of Alberta and the City of Spruce Grove. Bus stop upgrade funding
