Edmonton Transit System (ETS) operates bus route 747 that travels directly from the airport to Century Park LRT station in South Edmonton. Passengers can then transfer to an LRT train, bus or taxi to reach their final destination—but they’ll have to pay an additional fare. There are luggage size and quantity restrictions on this route, so if you have a large group or a lot of luggage, consider another method of transportation. One-way fare is $5. Free wi-fi is available on the bus. For help planning your route, phone ETS Bus Link at 780-496-1600 or visit the handy ETS trip planner.
Time: 30 – 90 minutes from downtown Edmonton (dependent on number of pick-up/drop-off stops)
Sky Shuttle is a convenient, cost-efficient way to travel to and from the Edmonton Airport and your hotel. Because shuttles make stops at multiple hotels, this is not a direct service. Rides must be pre-booked online or by phone. One-way fare is $18 for adults and $10 for children. Phone 780-465-8515 or visit their website.
Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and National have car rental facilities in Level 1 of the parkade of the Edmonton Airport. Some require advance reservations, visit the Edmonton Airport website to view policies and contact information for these companies, and to pre-book a vehicle.
