On Friday, the City of Edmonton also announced some upcoming ETS service changes, which include adjusted departure times on school specials and bus routes travelling to the following high schools: Harry Ainlay, Lillian Osborne, M.E. Lazerte, Queen Elizabeth and Strathcona. Routes 128 and 130 will also resume service to University Transit Centre. These changes are effective Nov. 29.

Capital and Metro Line LRT will continue to operate every 15 minutes until spring 2021. This is in order to accommodate construction on the Stadium LRT Station, which the city said is currently scheduled to be completed in early 2022.

The city also said ETS service will be modified for the December statutory holidays and the days surrounding Christmas to accommodate for the lower level of ridership during this time, as it typically does every year.

The ETS will continue to support physical distancing and safe travel for riders.
