In decision with City Council this afternoon, starting March 21, 2020, Edmonton Transit Service has been approved to temporarily suspend transit fares until further notice.
This decision was made to support social distancing by reducing interactions at front of bus to protect Operators and removing the requirement for in-person pass purchases, such as at retailers or the Edmonton Service Centre.
Passengers not requiring ramp access are asked to board the bus through the rear door.
Transit fares will not be required on DATS, conventional transit, LRT or the 747 airport service until further notice.
To protect yourself and others, AHS has asked all Albertans to stay home and away from others if sick or in isolation. Additional steps are on the AHS
