Light Rail Transit (LRT)

The LRT has 19 stations throughout the city, making travel fast and convenient.

Visit www.takeets.com for routes and fares.

Use of the LRT is included in the student U-Pass.

Bus

Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) routes offer quick transportation to major facilities such as Commonwealth Stadium, Northlands, and the University of Alberta to connect with the LRT system. You can transfer between the bus and LRT systems. Buses serve every neighbourhood in the greater Edmonton area, making it convenient and cost effective.

Visit www.takeets.com for routes and fares.

Use of the ETS system is included in the student U-Pass.

Taxi

Taxis are usually available at hotels, shopping centres, and event venues. In areas without a taxi stand, it is usually quicker to call for service rather than hail a taxi.
