Current Online Transit Schedules

Newest Transit Updates – Effective August 30, 2019

We’re committed to delivering transportation excellence to you – every day. This includes looking for opportunities to enhance transit service, including efficient routes, reliable service, quality infrastructure, and ongoing conversations with those who use transit service.

Click on the link Transit Schedules – Effective August 30, 2019 along the side of this page to view the new schedules and plan ahead.

Current schedules are in effect until August 29, and can be viewed here until the new schedules take effect on August 30. Please note that School Special service will start on September 3, 2019 for the first day of school.

Two new bus terminals – Thickwood and Timberlea

As you may have seen, we’re constructing two new bus terminals. One new terminal is located on Thickwood Blvd. in front of the Casman Centre by the corner of Eymundson Rd. The other is located in Timberlea on Confederation Way at the corner of Paquette Dr.

These new terminals have been fully funded through federal and provincial grant funding. 

Project highlights

  • Heated bus shelters
  • Sidewalks connecting to existing pedestrian network
  • Fencing for safe pedestrian access
  • Vehicle and pedestrian lighting
  • Thickwood terminal close to Casman Centre facilities (washrooms and refreshments)

On August 30, 2019, new transit routes and schedules will be put into effect. The new bus terminals will enhance routing, transfers, and connections on the north side of the Athabasca Bridge. This service will also make getting downtown even simpler.

Save money and be mindful of the environment by taking municipal transit to destinations in Fort McMurray and some rural communities. For detailed information, view schedules and maps on the Transit Schedules or Rural Bus Schedules pages.

Important note – Potential for detours

Sometimes there are unexpected delays for construction projects. While we anticipate that the new bus terminals will be open by the first day of school, we are also planning for the possibility of some transit detours to adjust for any potential construction delays.  

If there are construction delays, minor detours will ensure no interruptions to service. Information will be posted online by mid-August to help you plan for the first day of school or work, and ensure you can get to where you are going without interruption.  

Please be sure to check schedules again as we get closer to August 30 just in case some detours are put in place. We anticipate that potential detours will not create delays in pickup or drop-off times.
