ETS fall service changes start December 3
November 22, 2023

Beginning Sunday, December 3, Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) winter service changes take effect.

Service adjustments are made across the transit network to help improve schedule reliability. Riders will see more service during off-peak hours on some of ETS’ most popular routes, including busy school routes. Extra service added throughout September and October is now permanent. Improved and expanded service will continue to help riders get to their destinations, conveniently and reliably, this winter season.

Key Updates

Valley Line Southeast - The newest LRT line opened on November 4 and is a significant addition to the City’s integrated transit network. It runs 13 kilometres from Downtown to Mill Woods, making it easier for riders to access the entire city via public transit. In alignment with previous line extensions, bus service (Route 73) will continue to operate along the Valley Line Southeast LRT route until February 2024 in order to allow riders time to transition to the LRT service.

Routes 52, 53, 54, 55 and 56 - These routes will see additional weekday evening and weekend morning and evening trips added to address overloads and growing travel demand. Route 56 will have more trips extended to the Meadows Transit Centre during morning peak hours.

On Demand Transit
Glenridding On Demand Transit stops will move from Rabbit Hill Road to Glenridding Ravine Road SW with the completion of new roads in the neighbourhood.

On Demand Transit bus stops near Strathearn LRT stop will activate for the Cloverdale and East Seniors hubs.
