Fare Programs

ETS has many programs that provide reduced fare for groups of Edmontonians.

Ride Transit - The Ride Transit Program offers a monthly transit pass to eligible low-income Edmontonians at a subsidized rate of $34 or $48.50 per month effective February 1, 2020, depending on your household income. Eligibility recently expanded, so please check if you now qualify.

PATH - Providing Accessible Transit Here (PATH) provides free monthly transit passes to individuals who are homeless or are at high risk of homelessness.

Senior Annual Pass - Residents of Edmonton, 65 years of age and older qualify for an Annual Pass.

U-Pass - U-Pass provides eligible students at participating institutions unlimited travel on ETS and participating regional providers.

Edmonton International Airport (Route 747) - Route 747 is Edmonton Transit’s direct service to the Edmonton International Airport.

Attendants Ride Free - On regular ETS, any attendant with a fare paying DATS registrant can travel free. A DATS registrant must show their DATS registrant card for the attendant to travel free. On DATS, a designated mandatory attendant travels free while accompanying a fare paying DATS registrant. Children, aged twelve years and younger, of a registered user ride free of charge.

All ETS customers must pay a cash fare or be in possession of a valid transfer, ticket or pass as proof of payment. On buses, if paying with cash or tickets, you will need to take a transfer from the operator (even if you don’t need a transfer) to show proof of payment, in the event you are asked by a Transit Peace Officer or a member of Edmonton Police Service (EPS). Failure to do so can result in a fine of $250.
