New Thickwood bus terminal opens Dec. 27


The new Thickwood bus terminal on Thickwood Blvd in front of the Casman Centre will open for public use on Dec. 27. All transit routes with active detours in place to accommodate the construction of the terminal, will resume regular routing from the Thickwood Terminal once it becomes operational on Dec. 27.

Transit routes using the Thickwood station (Stop 5081) as a transfer point will resume regular routing and begin using the Thickwood Terminal (Stop 102) instead. The following transit routes will be affected:

  • Route 12 (Thickwood/Timberlea)
  • Route 16 (Thickwood)
  • Route 51 (Wood Buffalo)
  • Route 61 (Thickwood)

Transit route 12 will still service the Thickwood station (Stop 5081) as part of the regular routing. All transit schedules and service alerts are posted online at rmwb.ca/transit.

The Thickwood and Timberlea bus terminals have been fully funded through federal and provincial grant funding

The new bus terminals will enhance routing, transfers, and connections on the north side of the Athabasca Bridge. Learn more about the project at rmwb.ca/construction and click on the building infrastructure icon.

Updated transit fares take effect Jan. 1, 2020. 

Starting Jan. 1, 2020, a bus ride in Fort McMurray will cost a $1.50, with other transit fares in the urban area being updated to reflect this change. Rural transit fares have not been adjusted and will remain the same. To learn more about transit fares, visit rmwb.ca/transit.
