Public Service Announcement
Metro Line and System-Wide LRT closures February 25-28
There will be significant adjustments to LRT service from February 25-28 to accommodate testing and commissioning work for the Metro Line alternative signalling system.
On February 25 and 26, the Metro Line will be closed. To travel between Churchill and NAIT, transit customers can use bus routes 8 or 9. Capital Line trains will continue to run every 15 minutes between Century Park and Clareview stations.
On February 27 and 28, the Capital Line and Metro Line will both be closed. Customers may still see trains running, but trains will not be picking up or dropping off passengers. On these dates, Capital Line LRT replacement buses run between Century Park and Clareview stations every 8 minutes. These stops are marked by a red decal that says “LRT Replacement” (see photo). Metro Line customers are advised to use bus routes 8 or 9 between Churchill and NAIT stations. These routes run every 15-30 minutes on weekends.
Once testing and commissioning is complete, a decision will be made on when Edmonton’s LRT system can switch over to the new Alstom system. This switch could occur as early as Monday, March 1, 2021.
