Supporting citizens and businesses by providing flexible payment options for 2020 property taxes.
Until October 27, Shared Streets are open for people who walk, bike and drive, regardless of how they choose to move around our city.
Vehicle access is restricted to local traffic only along Shared Streets, and since all modes are using the same space, the speed limit is reduced to 20 km/hr.
Streets in densely populated neighbourhoods are the priority, so all Edmontonians have an opportunity to space out.

We are in this together - we can keep each other safe and healthy by following a few simple steps. Wear a mask or face covering, physically distance yourself from others, consider travelling during off-peak times and continue to follow AHS guidelines. Although bus shields and LRT cabs provide protection, Operators are required to wear masks at all times, including while behind the bus shield, in the LRT cab, and at our garages and transit centres.
ETS, in collaboration with a local biotechnology company, Outbreaker Solutions, is excited to pilot innovative germ-killing push-plates that are being installed on entrance and exit swing doors at some transit centres and LRT stations. Push-plate installation began at Bay/Enterprise Square LRT Station in January, as a way to further enhance safety on transit for passengers and staff. The push-plates are flat and are made of highly compressed salt. They look and feel just like a ceramic tile. The push-plates can be used to manually push open a door.
The company has published their research that shows the push-plates are effective in killing the majority of germs, including viruses, bacteria and fungi in just a few seconds, due to the salt crystals piercing the membrane walls of the germs, effectively neutralizing them.
Based on results from the push-plates at Bay/Enterprise Square LRT Station, it is anticipated that push-plates will be installed at nine other transit facilities. This pilot project will last 6 months, is at no cost to taxpayers and is a great example of how local innovation can support enhanced safety on transit.
Antimicrobial LRT Seats
In early 2021, new antimicrobial seats will be installed on two-thirds of the LRT fleet (the newer train models). These seats will have an antimicrobial additive in the plastic that can reduce up to 99.9 percent of microbes within 2 hours. This additive is a one-time application that is incorporated into the plastic and is not a coating. It should last the entire life of the seat.
