After getting off the plane around 430 I waited for nearly an hour for a bus to arrive. When I boarded the bus I discovered that only cash is an unacceptable for of payment. (You read that right.) The driver told me that I could get cash at an ATM machine in the airpot so I did. But while walking back towards the bus stop, the bus took off. I was left waiting another 30 minutes. As an outsider to Edmonton this welcome left me with a very chilly impression. I'm left baffled by how such a major Canadian city could have such a poor public transit from the airport to the city.

This photo is of an Edmonton Transit Bus, not the light Rail Transit. A great part of the city roads are a major disaster due to new LRT lines being constructed. The lines that are in use are well utilized and can get you to downtown and the U of A in no time at all. There have been some security issues at some stations. Completion of the new lines may take up to five years, so a great deal of patience is needed when driving through the affected areas. Will be a super service when completed!

I was in Edmonton for the Grey Cup. Took the LRT from downtown to the Commonwealth Stadium and back. Although it was busy on the way back it was an excellent way to travel. Quick and clean. The stations were clean as well. Would I take it again? Most definitely.

I love the high speed light rail lines in BC. Flying from airport terminal to cruise ship terminal that way is fantastic, sights along the route are worth the price, and speed and flow are terrific. Edmontons LRT system may have all of that one day, but except for the superb train cars, the LRT is only fantastic some of the time. Stations are clean and modern, but the route to NAIT school inexplicaly crosses very busy 111th Avenue - at street level, causing long delays which infuriates drivers and slows the train, delaying students. Not smart. But for a rush from the South side to center-city for work, shopping, seeing hockey, or for a quick way to the university or the Royal Alexandra hospital, our LRT is already A+. To Mill Woods in the Southeast? Coming soon. To the airport? Maybe in this century. To the western suburbs? Maybe one day. It's a very operation, a cash-losing system dogged by software and hardware problems since the start. But the promise is safee, clean, fast alternatives to buses and cars, and most Edmontonians back that 100%. Enjoy the LRT as it exists, Just don't think Vancouver or Calgary, not yet nor any time soon unless oil makes us weakthy again..
