School Special Changes
There are significant changes to School Specials starting September 1. The majority of School Special bus routes have been merged into regular ETS routes that serve the same areas.
School Special Changes
|Ticket (Book of 10)||$23|
Children 12 and under ride free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult. Unaccompanied children must pay cash fare or use youth tickets to board the bus or LRT.
Youth fares are available to ETS customers who are 17 years old and under. Reduced rates for youth are available on tickets and monthly passes. There is no reduced rate for cash fare or single ticket purchases.
Youth/Senior Tickets come in packs of 10. These tickets are restricted to persons aged 17 and under, and those 65+. Proof of age may be required by transit staff when using a Youth/Senior ticket. Tickets are valid for travel on all ETS service.
The Youth Monthly Pass allows an entire calendar month of travel on regular ETS service for persons aged 17 and under, or students up to their 20th birthday if they have current student ID.
During the regular academic year (September to June), we recommend that students purchase their monthly passes from the school they attend. Edmonton Catholic (ECS) and Edmonton Public (EPSB) school boards purchase these passes from ETS for full price and sell the passes to students at a discount. Contact your school directly for your student’s pass prices.
Youth Passes can be purchased year-round (including summer months July and August) at the regular rate from:
- ETS Online Store
- ACT Aquatic and Recreation Centre
- Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre
- Edmonton Service Centre at Edmonton Tower (10111 104 Avenue NW)
The Youth Pass is not available for purchase at retail outlets.
Proof of age and/or current student status must be presented to transit staff upon request, by any person using a Youth Monthly Pass.
Use of Yellow School Bus Pass on ETS
Edmonton Transit also permits limited use of the Yellow School Bus Pass on our system. Each Yellow Bus Pass holder is allowed six (6) trips per month on regular transit service for travel prior to 8pm. The Yellow Bus Pass must be punched by an Operator at the location marked on the pass, which is considered payment of one student fare. The student should receive a valid transfer for 90 minutes of travel; this is permitted for the pass holder only.
