Minutes from Edmonton the City of St. Albert has lots to offer its almost 66,000 residents. From the city’s Arden Theatre (host to more than 150 performances a year!) to the outdoor Red Willow Trail system (85 kilometres of trail!) there is so much recreation and culture to participate in and enjoy. The City is home to the International Children’s Festival, one of the longest running Children’s Festivals in North America.

Also, soon to be available (as soon as 2020) is the Regional Smart Fare System – for use on board buses and LRT in the City of St Albert, Edmonton, Strathcona County. This is a “tap and go” fare payment system that will make paying for transit as easy as buying a coffee. Customers will be able to use their credit cards, debit cards, other compatible smart cards and smart devices like a phone or watch. Since one account can be used on all participating transit systems, it will make travel across these regions super easy for customers.
