Wood Buffalo Transit System
The Municipality runs a fleet of transit buses that service the urban areas of Fort McMurray operating seven days a week with the exception of negotiated statutory holidays.
- Beginning July 9, 2013, transit buses 9A & 9B will be changing their route direction when entering the Alberta Drive area downtown. The buses will now continue straight down Alberta Drive and then turning onto Biggs Avenue, followed by leaving the area. Bus stops will be changed to the opposite side of the street.
- The final bus stop coming down Thickwood Boulevard has been eliminated and will no longer be in use effective immediately. Due to the construction of a third lane there is not enough room to accommodate a bus stop.
If you have further questions, you may contact Transit Services at 780.743.7931
