How to Preview New Bus Routes and Minimize Walking in Transit app

Transit has a preview mode to give you a peek at Edmonton’s new bus routes that launch on April 25, 2021. 
Here’s how to turn it on:

  1. Tap “settings” (gear icon, top left corner)
  2. Then tap the middle slider icon at the top of the screen

Now, you can see scheduled arrival times and plan your new trip by looking at route maps, finding the nearest stop, and using the trip planner.

Looking to cut down on walking distance? Follow the same steps to turn on preview mode, but scroll down a little further to “My transit options” and select “Minimize walking”.

To go back to the current routes, just follow the instructions again, but turn off “ETS Network Preview” and turn “ETS” back on.

Step-by-step guidance with GO

Tap GO to be reminded when to leave, when to transfer, and when to get off the bus. Subscribe to push notifications so you know when you’re almost there and when you’ve arrived. 

Avoid the crowds

With GO crowdsourcing, you can share real-time crowding reports and boost the accuracy of real-time info for fellow riders. After planning a trip in Transit app, any user can tap GO for step-by-step navigation on providing crowding information on ETS routes in real-time. When a nearby customer looks at a trip that involves your bus or train, they will see your crowding report. Knowing how crowded a bus or LRT ahead of time can help you plan your trip, providing peace of mind and an increased sense of security.
