Alberta Transportation has approved an application by Edmonton Transit System, in partnership with the City of Leduc and Leduc County, to provide a new commuter service between Edmonton and Leduc.

The Oct. 8 decision found that the C-Line project is in the public interest despite an objection by Greyhound Canada Transportation Corp.

The C-Line is expected to be operational between Century Park in Edmonton, Edmonton International Airport, Nisku Industrial Park and the City of Leduc within several weeks.
