Starting November 29, there will be some minor schedule adjustments on several bus routes to improve efficiency, reliability and connections. Capital and Metro Line LRT will continue to operate every 15 minutes until spring 2021 to accommodate the Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment project.
Note: On November 30, there is a Professional Development day for public schools. As a result, buses will operate on regular weekday service, with no school special bus routes or school branches of existing routes for public schools.
Please plan ahead and double check your route and schedule, or plan your trip using real-time tools.

The following routes have undergone some schedule adjustments:
- Routes 6, 8S, 9S, 10, 11S, 30S, 32S, 37, 39S, 44S, 46, 50S, 77, 80S, 87S, 125, 145S, 160S, 165S, 167, 180S, 181, 182, 186, 187, 188, 602, 613, 614, 807 (Thursday only) and 809
These include changes to departure times on school specials and bus routes travelling to the following high schools:
- Harry Ainlay

- Queen Elizabeth
Note: From November 30-January 8, some school special trips will be cancelled on the following routes: Routes 2S, 4S, 10S, 11S, 23S, 30S, 70S, 99S, 100S, 102S, 112S, 115S, 119S, 141S, 142S, 145S, 153S, 160S, 165S, 167S, 181S, 186S, 801, 802, 807 and 813.
Bus routes 128 and 130 will resume service to University Transit Centre, as Groat Road Bridges and Road Renewal Project construction is complete. This means these routes will resume service to Hawrelak Park, 87 Ave west of the University of Alberta, as well as University Transit Centre. At this time, these routes will no longer stop at the Government Centre Transit Centre.
Bus route 812 is permanently cancelled due to low ridership.
As is the case with the December schedule change in previous years, ETS modifies service levels for the December statutory holidays and the days around Christmas to reflect the lower level of ridership during this time.
Heritage Valley Park & Ride (Route 700)
Starting November 30, shuttle buses will run between Heritage Valley Park & Ride and Century Park Transit Centre. These buses will be marked as bus route 700 and will run every 5-10 minutes on weekdays only from approximately 5am - 10pm.
