83 Street Detour for Routes 8,15, 60S, 61S, 80 and 83

To improve operational reliability and safety during Valley Line LRT construction, ETS has decided to detour all routes that travel on 83 Street between Argyll Road and 82 Avenue starting on Monday December 9. Since construction began, these buses have experienced operational delays and the new routes will enhance route safety, especially during the winter months.

During this time, ETS will provide additional service on Route 151 to help support connections to downtown. Weekday service will be extended until 10:30pm and will run every 30 minutes from 8am-8pm on weekends.

LRT Schedule Changes - December 14 and 15
Due to planned maintenance work, there will be some LRT changes on Saturday December 14 and Sunday December 15. From 5am-4pm each day, Capital and Metro trains run every 20 minutes. Metro trains run only between NAIT and Grandin between these hours.

Please plan ahead using the Trip Planner at takeETS.com or use real-time tools.

LRT Notifications

  • Corona Station 107 Street North Entrance Closure
    Starting at 9:30pm on Sunday November 17, this entrance will be closed for 9-10 weeks to complete heat trace replacement. This work will help enhance stairwell safety, as heat trace is the wiring under the station tiles that helps prevent the formation of ice on the tiles. All other station entrances remain open.
