ETS supports the local community in several ways.  ETS values and would like to support all organizations but we have a finite set of resources.  ETS strives to better leverage resources in making a significant difference to the quality of life in Edmonton. As a result, we have strategically focused efforts on key philanthropic programs and activities. 

Community Sponsorship Program Guidelines

ETS Key Programs

ETS Stuff a Bus
ETS selected Edmonton Food Bank as the charity of choice.  Edmonton’s Food Bank relies every year on the leadership of ETS and support of partners to stock its shelves with food to be given to Edmontonians in need during the Christmas season. 
ETS Free New Year's Eve Service
News Years Eve Service is free but ETS encourages riders to donate their fare to Donate A Ride.
ETS School Programs
ETS supports all ages of children through various programs.

ETS Key Partnerships

Edmonton Fringe Festival
ETS supports Fringe volunteers, artists, and attendees throughout the 11-day festival.  Fringe Festival “improves the quality of life in Edmonton”, supports public transportation and meets other criteria as outlined in ETS’ Community Support Requests guidelines.
Homeless Connect Event
The event is held twice per year and ETS supports this event by providing free service to homeless attendees and to the event volunteers.
Donate A Ride
City of Edmonton initiated charity, spearheaded by city councillors.  ETS helps to collect donations in order to purchase transit tickets.  These tickets are supplied to social service agencies that provide them “to low-income Edmonton families that are in need of basic transportation to get to employment, educational and social services that are required to improve their quality of life".
