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.
Route 747 remains in place as a charter service for all passengers, with the exception of airline travellers. Look for the bus marked ‘Special’ rather than 747. This service adjustment will ensure the provincial government’s direction of self-isolation for airline travellers is followed.
Anyone carrying travel luggage will be presumed to be a traveller and not allowed to board the ETS bus.
We realize this is a major inconvenience, but we’re doing our best to protect the public. The government has put strict regulations in place for travellers regarding self-isolation. 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.
Only a select few ETS buses are highway certified so we have kept using the buses with luggage racks.
- We can keep each other safe and healthy by following a few simple steps. Wearing a mask or face covering is highly encouraged, physically distance yourself from others, consider travelling during off peak times and continue to follow AHS guidelines
