100 Street detour changes for nine bus routes, effective Monday, June 17
June 14, 2019

Based on customer and Operator feedback, ETS is adjusting downtown detours for bus routes 60, 61, 62, 63, 66, 68, 69, 72 and 90. At the start of service on Monday, June 17, these routes will detour onto 97 Street between Jasper Avenue and 104 Avenue. 

Bus routes 7, 8, 15, 52, 70, 81, 82, 85, 87, 112, 512, 856 and 965 will continue to detour onto 101 Street between Jasper Avenue and 104 Avenue.

ETS detours are due to the closure of 100 Street at 102 Avenue to accommodate the construction of Valley Line LRT tracks across the intersection. The detours will last until approximately July 20. 

Updated orange and white detour notices will be installed on posts next to closed bus stops and new temporary stops in advance of the detours. ETS staff will be at bus stops on 100 and 97 Streets next week to assist passengers in finding their new temporary stops.

ETS, in cooperation with Parking Services, has already implemented additional changes to improve traffic flow in downtown along Jasper Avenue between 100 and 101 Streets. The installation of temporary “no stopping” signage on Jasper Avenue from 100 to 101 Streets and at 101 Street and 104 Avenue will assist with ETS operations. ETS relocated bus stop #1262 on Jasper Avenue further west to 101 Street at Jasper Avenue to provide more room for buses to stop.

ETS customers may experience service delays as buses navigate construction sites and manage roadways with increased traffic.
Transit riders are encouraged to plan their trips in advance, double check their route schedules and use real-time tools. For more information about the detours, visit takeETS.com/news.
