ETS Route 747 is suspended for use by all airline travellers. However, bus service marked "Special" is available for all other passengers at Route 747 stops. It serves the Edmonton International Airport, nearby outlet mall and regional area. This adjustment is in response to COVID-19 guidelines. 

Who can use Route 747 service (as of May 13, 2020)

Your trip planner says Route 747 is operating as usual, why can’t I take transit for an airline trip?

You will need to make alternative arrangements for transportation such as taxi and ride share services (Taxi stands are located at Century Park and at the airport).

We don’t have a timeframe at this point. Until further notice.

Why do you have buses with luggage racks if I can’t use the service for a plane trip?
