Strathcona County Transit provides local, commuter and school bus services to the community of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, which is situated just east of Edmonton in Strathcona County. Transportation for elderly citizens and people with disabilities is provided by Strathcona County Accessible Transportation (SCAT) within Sherwood Park and rural Strathcona County.[2]

Services[edit]

Expansion of local scheduled weekday services is introduced on August 5, 2008 to provide bus service to newer areas and all-day routes within neighbourhoods.[3] Dial-a-bus service takes over from the regular routes in the evening after 7 p.m. and on weekends.

The transit system provides local bus service within Sherwood Park and express service to destinations like downtown Edmonton, Government Centre, University of Alberta, MacEwan University, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, and the Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre.
