ETS spring service changes begin April 28
April 16, 2019

On Sunday, April 28, ETS will implement its spring schedule adjustments to accommodate shifts in ridership demand and improve efficiencies. These changes are part of the regular adjustments that ETS makes five times each year to reflect changing ridership patterns and customer feedback.

The spring adjustments will involve minor schedule changes for bus routes, major changes to Routes 7, 8, 15 and 57, and the introduction of Designated Drop-Off Zones for buses at Lewis Farms and South Campus transit centres.

Following the end of the winter school term, extra post-secondary bus trips will be reduced and some routes that serve post-secondary institutions will be cancelled until September. To improve efficiencies, Route 57 will be merged into Route 7, which will increase Route 7 frequency between the University of Alberta and downtown. In addition, Routes 7, 8 and 15 will now permanently travel east and west on 104 Avenue between 100 and 105 Street instead of 102A and 103 Avenue. Signage will be displayed at closed bus stops on 102A and 103 Avenue to direct passengers to their new stops.

ETS will pilot new Designated Drop-Off Zones at Lewis Farms and South Campus that will change how buses operate at these transit centres and how signs are displayed at bus bays. Before moving to its boarding bay to pick up passengers, all arriving buses will use one of the two drop-off zones for disembarking passengers.Additional information, including a full list of bus bay changes at Lewis Farms and South Campus, is available at 

Weekend service on Route 594 to the Edmonton Valley Zoo will return on Saturday, May 18, running on regular Saturday and Sunday schedules. Daily service will begin July 1. Due to ongoing renovations at Fort Edmonton Park, there will be no seasonal service on Route 595.

Transit riders are encouraged to double check their route schedules and use real-time tools . For more information about specific schedule adjustments, service on Victoria Day and additional school breaks in May and June, visit .
