ETS fall service changes take effect September 2
On Sunday, September 2, Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) changes to accommodate higher rider demand in the fall.
Changes include restoring seasonal trips that were reduced in July, such as school specials and post-secondary routes. LRT will return to regular 15-minute service on Capital and Metro Lines from 7 p.m. to the end of service on weeknights and all-day on weekends and holidays. Additional schedule adjustments will occur on some bus routes to better serve customers. All changes can be found here.
ETS plans and adjusts bus routes five times a year to improve service and the transit experience for riders. These changes are made to accommodate shifts in rider demand, customer feedback and road construction activity.
September is the busiest time of year for transit users as many return to school and work. In preparation for the first week back to school, students are encouraged to plan ahead and double check route schedules and bus stop locations.
ETS also strongly advises passengers to watch attentively for their approaching bus and signal the operator that they would like to board. Otherwise, operators may presume passengers are waiting for a different bus and not stop.
