ETS Fare Increase Coming in February

Jan. 18, 2016

The Edmonton Transit System (ETS) cash fare is increasing by a nickel as of Feb. 1. Other fare adjustments apply to February fare products, including monthly passes, regardless of the date they are purchased. However, ETS tickets purchased prior to February 1 that have not expired remain valid. 

The Assured Income for Severely Handicapped (AISH) monthly transit pass and fares for Route 747 (from Century Park transit centre to Edmonton International Airport) will not increase at this time.

ETS fares have not changed since 2013. The new fares represent an average increase of approximately three per cent. Adjusting fares aligns with City Council’s multi-year budgeting process.

ETS operates 929 buses, 90 DATS vehicles and 94 Light Rail Transit vehicles on more than 200 routes and anticipates almost 90 million trips on transit services in 2016.
