Please note the following when travelling with your luggage* to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.

All passenger luggage must be placed in the luggage racks provided or on the floor in front of the seat. No passenger luggage is allowed in the aisle.
Provincial requirements dictate that the operator will not move the bus if there is passenger luggage in the aisle.
Bicycles are not allowed on Route 747 buses.
Passengers are responsible for handling their own luggage. Bus operators are not required to assist passengers with luggage movement.
Edmonton Transit Service is not responsible for lost or damaged passenger luggage. Call 780-496-1622, prompt 1 for ETS Lost & Found.
Should you notice a suspicious package at Century Park Transit Centre or on the bus please notify the bus operator or call Transit Watch at 780-442-4900.
*Passenger luggage includes: suitcases, backpacks, boxes, bags and any other carrying device for the transport of personal belongings.
The interior of the Route 747 buses is very similar to the everyday buses you see within the city. The differences are the exterior bus wrap on the buses and the three seats across from the back exit of the bus have been replaced with luggage racks. The racks are approximately the same length as the three seats they replace. The luggage rack on each bus has two shelves.
Since this is a special regional service provided outside the city boundaries, its operating costs are not subsidized to the same extent as service within Edmonton. This is why the fares differ. Route 747 is a partnership between the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton International Airport. The route operates under the authority of both the Province of Alberta and the City of Edmonton.
There is no luggage limit per passenger - luggage rack space is available on a first come, first served basis. Passengers already on board with their luggage are not required to move their luggage to accommodate additional passengers. However, please be considerate and when possible put personal belongings on your lap to accommodate additional passengers.
Yes animals are allowed on the buses, provided they are in an airline approved carrier. Please keep in mind that passengers should be aware of the requirements for storing luggage or large packages on Route 747 - packages must be placed in the luggage racks, on the seats or on the floor in front of the seats. No passenger luggage is allowed in the aisle. There is a yellow line that delineates the aisle area, where larger packages cannot be placed.
