Fort Saskatchewan post-secondary students are growing frustrated with the daily parking gamble at the Clareview ETS parking lot.
Parking at Clareview, the closest Edmonton Transit Services station to the Fort, has become a daily roll-of-the-dice as some spots have been changed to reserved, only adding to the congestion during peak hours.
The city is reminding students from NAIT, University of Alberta and McEwan that Fort Transit supports the U-Pass to get to school in Edmonton.
"If you're traveling within Edmonton and you want to head home to Fort Saskatchewan, if you have a U-Pass then you wouldn't have to pay for any fares on that journey," said Anthony Dionigi, transit supervisor for the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
City officials also encourage students to use the Smarttraxx phone app to keep track of the bus they need in real-time.
"Up to 25 per cent of our ridership is being used by students getting to the various participating schools."
U-Passes are also versatile for students, with regional transit services like Strathcona County Transit and St Albert Transit also accepting the student-exclusive pass.
Fort Transit times and routes are up on their website.
