How will safety and security be handled on the Valley Line Southeast?
Safety and security procedures will largely function the same way it does for the Capital and Metro lines. Edmonton Transit Service works with their partners – including Edmonton Police Service, Transit Peace Officers and Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society – to deploy personnel in a way that helps ensure a proactive and effective presence.
There are blue emergency phones installed on all stop and station platforms. When the phone is picked up, the rider is immediately connected to the ETS Control Centre. Riders can also call/text Transit Watch at 780-442-4900 anytime on Valley Line Southeast trains to report safety or security concerns directly to the ETS Control Centre. Resources are dispatched as needed.
In the event of an emergency on the train, riders can contact the LRT operator by pressing the yellow strips running along the train walls or the button near the wheelchair space.
Why are there no crossing arms, gates, or bells at intersections?
This style of low-floor LRT is designed to be highly integrated into the communities it serves, and trains are integrated with the flow of traffic, allowing the system to be built without crossing arms, gates or bells. This style of LRT is common in many other cities. Road users can stay safe by obeying the signs and signals that indicate where to stop, and what traffic movements are allowed.
Will the traffic lights be synchronized along the line? Why do I have to stop at every intersection?
Unlike some other roads in Edmonton, traffic signals along the Valley Line Southeast are not designed to coordinate between one intersection and the next.
They are, however, designed to integrate with the movement of the train. When more trains start to move frequently, you will see greater efficiencies with traffic signals and traffic flow. When in service, trains will travel with traffic and, at most intersections, the train will cross at the same time the green signal is provided for parallel motorists and pedestrians.
Why isn’t the Valley Line Southeast elevated?
While low-floor LRT is new to Edmonton, it is common in many cities around the world. The low-floor transit system is designed to fit into neighbourhoods and requires smaller-scale infrastructure than traditional high-floor trains.
Valley Line Southeast trains sit approximately level with the surface of the stop platform, enabling easy, step-free boarding for passengers. And because the system is integrated with the existing roadway, Valley Line trains move with traffic and travel at community speeds, enhancing safe, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood design.
Why are there “no right turn on red light” signs at intersections?
These signs are at intersections where a motorist turning right might not see or hear a train approaching. The trains are very quiet. Motorists should not turn right on a red light, since there could be a train coming from either direction, including from behind in their blind spot.
Please obey all signs and signals – they are there to keep you safe. “No right turn on red” intersections are also common along bike routes in the city and at intersections with scramble (all direction) crosswalks.

What is a Public-Private Partnership (P3)?
A public-private partnership, or P3, is a partnership between governments and the private sector to build public infrastructure like roads, hospitals or schools or to deliver services.
I want to work as a vendor, sub-contractor or employee for the project. Whom can I contact?
TransEd is very interested in hiring and working with local individuals, suppliers and sub-contractors. To partner with on the project, please visit the Join Our Team page for more information.
Why do TransEd crews sometimes work at night?
In some areas our crews work throughout the night, we understand this might cause temporary disruption to the residents or businesses located in those areas. Crews occasionally work at night mainly to avoid causing service disruptions, or traffic and pedestrian disturbances, during the day. While maintenance is an important part of any transit system, TransEd is committed to minimizing noise and vibration impacts along the corridor during any maintenance work.
