Regular Service Resumes August 30
We are pleased to welcome back riders to regular bus service starting August 30. We thank ETS customers for their patience and understanding over the past 5 months as we made adjustments in response to the pandemic to help keep Edmontonians safe.
Wear non-medical masks or face coverings when using public transit, or in other locations where physical distancing is not possible.
Please make sure you dispose of your used disposable masks and/or gloves into a waste bin. If one is not available, store your used materials in a plastic bag until they can be disposed of properly.

ETS Fall Service Changes
Starting Sunday, August 30, ETS will be resuming regular bus service levels. LRT will be extended back to regular end of service, which is approximately 1:30am, but will operate on reduced frequencies as a result of the Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment project. On Monday, August 31 and Tuesday, September 1, buses will operate on regular weekday service with no school special bus routes or school branches of existing routes as there will be no Public and Catholic school trips. On Labour Day, Monday, September 7, buses will operate on regular Sunday schedules.
Double check route brochures or plan your trip using real-time tools. Due to short notice schedule changes, please use Google Maps, Transit app or the Trip Planner at takeETS.com to plan trips between August 30 and September 12. ETS Live will have up-to-date schedules starting September 13.
