Hello all,

Is there somewhere other than City Hall I am able to pick up route brochures/system maps? I will be in Edmonton next month but it'll be on a weekend

The downtown library would be your best bet for brochures. Or you could request the desired brochures by mail through 3-1-1 form on edmonton.ca. Might take a week to get to you.

HELLO BLAKE M. FROM CALGARY

I have spent an enormous amount of time looking up URL's for your adventure visiting Alberta's Capital City Edmonton.  You are very intelligent ( I read your postings ) and I hope you will save trees and keep the below information electronically.  Also just like Calgary there will be service reductions in Edmonton over the summer which might inconvenience you.  You might want to change your plans to visit Edmonton during the fall.  The South East LRT should be in operation soon ?  This would make your adventure a lot of fun.  If you have an iPad, you can store the PDF's or look up the information using many WIFI sites in Edmonton.

One request Blake M., please reply if you only have something polite to say.

My main concern would be if he used an iPad all day the electricity to charge comes from a coal fired plant, so mabe best to use the paper maps which are already printed anyways 😜

Catherine,

Your concern for the trees is commendable, however many transit enthusiasts cherish having paper copies of Maps / Ride Guides and timetables / route schedules Firstly, such items are considered 'memorabilia', and secondly, they won't disappear into thin air like pages on the internet sometimes do, and thirdly, twenty or thirty years from now they will be valuable to other transit memorabilia collectors. 

I had a small filing cabinet brimming with ETS publications: maps, brochures, calendars, magazines, advertisements (back when the marketing dept consisted of brilliant minds) and much, much more. At the time I thought nothing of it. When I downsized in 2011 I had some close friends over. They brought duffel bags and had an absolute field day with my assorted collection of 'memorabilia'.  A good chunk of it proved to be somewhat historically significant. One close friend even made off with the filing cabinet too 😄

I was pleased to be able to contribute to the collections that others had begun, and through the marvel of technology, some of it has been scanned and uploaded to various websites for the world to enjoy (electronically).

Temporary WEM Transit Centre on 90 Avenue is now online, as the old one closes for Valley Line West construction. 

7165 was the first bus to depart from Temporary WEM, on a 918B- Lessard. Pics of other buses included, along with a general transit centre shot.

#38 going EB Heritage Drive, Wednesday morning. Unsure if still in ETS service & down in Calgary for repairs, or otherwise. 

That one has been in Calgary for a few years now and is/was owned by a daycare.

I managed to get a photo of that one by Chinook Centre last time I was in Calgary:

Red Arrow and EBus shifted their South Edmonton stop to Southgate Transit Centre as of March 22, replacing the Ramada Hotel stop. As well on the 22nd they started stopping at Sorensen Station in Red Deer. 

And since I covered PWT buses serving Southgate and University... a recent shot of an Ebus starting it's trip at Kingsway/ RAH. 

Carrying on with this topic. 

Start up in the Edmonton - Calgary corridor The Canada Bus has also been granted access to Southgate and Kingsway Transit Centre's. Finally with some overcast, went and got a few pics today.
