Transdev to provide operation support for Edmonton’s light rail expansion

Posted on February 25, 2016

The TransEd Partners Consortium has been chosen to design, build, operate, maintain and finance stage one of Edmonton’s Valley Line LRT (Light Rail Transit) for a $1.8 billion comprehensive PPP project.

It is currently envisioned that Transdev will provide operational management support for all aspects of operations for the Valley Line LRT including participating in developing the operations plan and all operating procedures, delivering training, and providing day-to-day management on the operational aspects of the system as a subcontractor to the services provider, which is composed of Bombardier Transportation, EllisDon and Bechtel.

Phase one of the project involves building 11 street-level stops for an LRT line, which will connect the Mill Woods Town Centre (Southeast of the City) to existing stops in Edmonton’s City Center. These new connections will allow for added transit access and usability throughout greater Edmonton.

Project construction will begin in 2016 and the service is expected to begin in 2020. The contract award to TransEd Partners includes operations and maintenance of the Valley LRT Line service for 30 years after construction is complete.

The Valley Line will feature street-level stops and low-floor vehicles that will allow for seamless integration into Edmonton’s existing transportation infrastructure. Many attractive features of the service were added after an extensive series of public engagements soliciting feedback. In addition to attractive shelters, a new pedestrian bridge will be built at Cloverdale as part of stage 1, providing added transit access for pedestrians and cyclists.
