Skyshuttle Airport Service
The Sky Shuttle provides bus service between the airport and various locations and major hotels in Edmonton. A one-way fare is $18 and service operates at 30-45-minute intervals between 7:00 am to 1:00 am. Travel time to campus is 30 minutes. Unless you have made alternate arrangements for accommodations at the end of your stay, please consider purchasing a round-trip ticket. You can purchase tickets at the Skyshuttle kiosk, located in the lower level (Arrivals) by door #7. When you purchase a ticket, tell the Skyshuttle staff where you will be staying. The staff will then advise you of the nearest stop. The Skyshuttle will not stop unless a location is requested, so make sure you inform them where you need to be let off. Ask for the Campus Tower Suite Hotel if you are staying on campus. Ask for Varscona Hotel if you are staying on Whyte Avenue. The service also stops directly at the Comfort Inn & Suites Downtown. It is possible to pre-book a shuttle ahead of time, although this is not necessary when traveling from the Edmonton airport into the city.
