Gain access to the city with Edmonton Transit

Our partners at Edmonton Transit System (ETS) have helped us create a fun introduction to public transportation giving young people with autism the confidence to navigate their city.

Are you a teen with autism looking to gain better access to your city and increase your independence? Let’s Ride gives young people the confidence they need to navigate their community.

Offered in partnership with ETS, Let’s Ride provides all you need to know to use public transit. From planning your trip using ETS trip tools and using your smartphone to get the latest information to boarding, riding, transferring, and finding your destinations, Let’s Ride is designed to help you be an independent public transit traveller. You’ll get lots of practice in the community alongside new friends and, with an emphasis on safety, you’ll be well-prepared to make the most of your new-found independence.


  • Ability to become an independent transit user
