Thank you, Alberta, for supporting public transit

The Canadian Urban Transit Association today thanked Premier Jason Kenney and Transport Minister Ric McIver for supporting public transit through the safe restart agreement.

Thanks to Alberta and the federal government, $140 million will be delivered to public transit systems across the province to help them support the economic recovery safely.

“Public transit was a lifeline for essential workers during the depths of the lockdown and is a lifeline as the economy reopens,” said Marco D’Angelo, CUTA’s CEO. “Alberta’s support of public transit will help us keep communities connected safely. We thank Premier Kenney and Minister McIver for recognizing public transit’s importance to thousands of Albertans every day.”
