How good is the public transit system? Can I use it to commute to campus from other places in the city?
Public transit is easily accessible from campus and many other parts of Edmonton; it is entirely possible to get around Edmonton without a vehicle. Check out the ETS link below for more info.
Many students also chose to cycle to campus. Edmonton has over 275km of shared paths and multi-use trails perfect for a morning ride to classes and an additional 117 km of bike lanes and on-street routes to help protect cyclists on the road. Heck, you can even take your bike on the LRT and on certain bus routes.
Armed with nothing more than our bikes and sheer determination, my fifteen-year-old brother, Cory and I scale the hills and the lush forests that engulf our city.

I was relieved to hear what seemed like a chorus of murmurs: "No problem, go ahead," from the other passengers.

The Edmonton Radial Railway became famous throughout North America because of the unique streetcar ride over the North Saskatchewan River, the highest river crossing by streetcar in the world.
- How Does Edmonton MOVE You? Winners
We asked Edmontonians “How does Edmonton MOVE you?” Entrants submitted stories and experiences about cycling, rollerblading, walking, taking transit and carpooling.
When I first arrived she helped me with the transition to this culture. To the community, and school especially. It saved a lot of time, because when you’re new to a country, sometimes you just don’t know what to do.

My bicycle has given me a new lease on life in Edmonton now that I leave the car key at home when I go out to visit my favourite haunts.
