West Edmonton Mall Transit Centre Bus Ramp Area
If you require the ramp to board a bus at stops #5004 (routes 107 and 110), #5007 (routes 106 and 150) or #5008 (route 2), there are new blue Bus Ramp Area decals that ensure safe deployment and use of the bus ramp at these stops.

Children 12 and under can ride ETS for free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult. Children riding ETS alone are still required to pay the regular fare when they board the bus or LRT.
Transit Centre Improvements
Construction has begun to renew or replace the transit centres at Belvedere, Castle Downs and Jasper Place. Plan ahead and view on-site signage for any bus stops closures.
Changes to Park & Ride at Century Park LRT
