Bus Network Redesign
Our bus routes are changing
Our city is growing and changing, which means Edmonton’s bus routes need to change too. In 2020, the ETS bus network will look completely different. This transformation will introduce new kinds of routes that will help you move across the city more quickly and efficiently.
Routes will be grouped into four types including: frequent bus routes, rapid bus routes, crosstown routes and local routes. Each of these routes will be straighter with less overlap between them. Inner areas of the city will see an increase of service throughout the day while outer suburban areas will see more service during rush hour for commuters. Check out the routes maps at edmonton.ca/newbusroutes.
In order for the City to provide faster or more frequent service, some people may need to walk up to 10 minutes to get to a bus stop. The City recognizes this is not possible for some residents, so a study is underway to see how other cities manage this situation to ensure most everyone can get to where they are going.
