After evaluating Devon's Transit Pilot, Council has made the difficult decision to conclude the pilot with ETS effective Jan. 22, 2022 due to low ridership and the costs associated with the service. Administration has been directed to continue to work with the Edmonton Metropolitan Transit Services Commission (EMTSC) to look for affordable options for bringing a regional transit service to Devon.
