Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are assessing plans for the Seniors on the Go program, individual and group mobility training. Updates will be posted to this page when available. If you have questions, contact the ETS Accessibility Coordinator at 780-496-5788 and leave a message.
The ETS Seniors on the Go program is offered annually May through August. The program is designed to familiarize seniors with their public transit options to help them feel comfortable, confident, and safe using public transit.
|Seniors on the Go is now closed for the 2019 season.
If you are interested in a Transit information session for your seniors group September through April, please contact the ETS Accessibility Coordinator at 780-496-3000 to set up a session.
NOTE: 10 business days notice is required for a booking.
Senior’s residential, recreational and social groups, and organizations that have reasonable access to public transit service and whose members can travel independently are invited to participate in a free hands-on learning session with ETS. They will learn how to plan trips and travel to destinations in their vicinity by taking a sample trip on transit to a local destination.
With potential destinations ranging from libraries and shopping centers to exploring Edmonton landmarks and attending local festivals, our seniors are in for an educational and exciting summer opportunity.
Since the introduction of the program in 2007, this educational and interactive program has benefited more than 5,000 people through over 70 seniors residential, recreational and social sites/groups, activity centres and seniors' groups in Edmonton.
After groups have experienced the transit system first hand from their outing, participants will also have the opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of the transit system with our new “Transit Tech Tools” secondary sessions. These sessions will be scheduled on a separate day to help us better understand our participants’ transit experiences while also showcasing the variety of technological customer tools offered by ETS, such as ETS Trip Planner and Live Bus.
Those interested in scheduling a Seniors On the Go outing can get more information and an application package from May through June period when the program is in operation.
