Getting from the Airport
To catch a taxi or limo head outside Door 9 on the Arrivals level. Expect a flat rate of $55 for a taxi, or $66 for a limo, for your ride to downtown Edmonton, about 35 minutes.
Alternatively, once every 30 minutes during peak hours, and hourly during off-peak times, an express bus (Edmonton Transit Service route 747) runs from the airport to the Century Park Transit Centre, for $5 per fare. From there, it’s about a 20-minute trip on the LRT, $3.50 per fare, to arrive downtown.
The Edmonton Transit Service operates buses and light rail throughout the city. Fares range from $3.50 cash for a single ride to $9.75 for a day pass.
You can hail a cab curbside, especially downtown, but it’s best to book ahead; a call to Greater Edmonton Taxi Service will connect you to the first car available from several fleets. If you prefer rideshare apps, Uber operates in the city, as does the Edmonton-based TappCar.
