Development, upgrades and improvements to Edmonton public transportation.

Edmontonians will begin to see more development, upgrades and improvements to Edmonton public transportation beginning in May, 2017 thanks to the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF).

This fund holds approximately $300 million and is made of contributions from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and the City of Edmonton. It has allowed the City of Edmonton to put forward 46 infrastructure projects across Edmonton to improve the user experience when using Edmonton Transit Services and LRT.

Transit Centre Improvements

Belvedere Transit Centre

The Belvedere Transit Centre (6120-129 Avenue) is a heated building on the east side of the bus lanes, where transit riders wait for the bus. The existing building will be removed and a new building will be constructed in the same area. The existing building will be replaced with a new, larger building with improved amenities and viewing area.

Feedback gathered during public engagement contributed to the final improvement designs.

What We Heard - Belvedere Transit Centre Improvements

Construction began in December 2017. The new transit centre is expected to open in Fall 2018. Construction will not affect bus or LRT services. Please respect all site signage and stay out of the construction zone.

Transit users can wait for their bus inside the LRT station.
