Edmonton’s bus routes are changing. The new network focuses on connecting people to places and to each other.

The Bus Network Redesign is the first major action coming out of the Transit Strategy. The new bus network, built with input from thousands of Edmontonians, reflects residents' priorities by delivering a bus service that meets the needs of more people.

Planning the New Bus Network

Phase 1

Spring 2018

Develop the Bus Network

In this phase, the technical team created the new draft bus network based on the principles in the Transit Strategy.

Starting in April 2018, we will start consulting Edmontonians, asking them to help us refine the new bus network by providing their feedback and sharing their local knowledge.

Phase 2

Summer/Fall 2018

Refine the Bus Network

Over the summer of 2018, we will use the information shared by Edmontonians in the first round of engagement to refine the new bus network.

In the fall, we will check back with Edmontonians to share how we incorporated their feedback into the final bus network, and to gather final feedback.

Phase 3


Prepare the Bus Network

In 2019, we will begin preparations to launch the new bus network. Work will include developing educational materials, creating new bus maps and making new bus stop signs among other things.

Phase 4


Roll Out the Bus Network

We anticipate that the new bus network will be implemented In 2020. We will have educational materials and street teams available to help people navigate and understand the new bus system.


In 2015, we started talking to Edmontonians about what they wanted in a transit system. A new approach was needed, based on a community conversation about the role of transit in our city. These conversations resulted in the development of the Transit Strategy.

We heard from over 20,000 Edmontonians. We spoke with all sorts of people - motorists and transit riders, young children and seniors, suburbanites and urban dwellers, indigenous Edmontonians, people with disabilities, and many others.

What we heard from Edmontonians directly informed the development of the Transit Strategy and now the Bus Network Redesign. The elements of the Strategy - Values, Pillars, Guiding Principles, and Actions - guide how we deliver transit service and how we invest in transit over the next 10 years.
