Short title: “Moving Edmonton”

Full title: “Moving Edmonton – Celebrating 100 Years of Edmonton Transit” (full version)

In November of 1908, the Edmonton Radial Railway began providing public transportation to the citizens of Edmonton with a modest fleet of four streetcars traveling 21 km of track. Today, Edmonton Transit System (ETS) has grown to operate a fleet of over 900 vehicles on more than 150 routes. ETS has been moving Edmonton from the past, through our evolving society, and is poised to move us into the future.

“Moving Edmonton” uncovers the evolving story of Edmonton Transit, through the experiences and reflections of retired and current personnel.
