Bus Schedules

Diversified Transportation Routes for Syncrude

Syncrude has standardized the bus routes to and from our sites. This means less frequent stops, standard walking distances to bus stops, and an easier to use route system. The new routes will aim to utilize the City's heated bus shelters.

Site Services Transportation Efficiency Review 2014

An efficiency review of Syncrude Transportation services has been completed in conjunction with the Corporate Logistic Committee. The objective of this review was as follows:

  • Analyze all services to determine if they are utilized to the targeted capacity. This analysis was conducted through data compiled via GPS units on each piece of equipment and daily reports for passenger counts.
  • Conduct a Cost analysis of cost per passenger per month for all routes and services to determine the highest efficiency with the least visible change.
  • Determine efficiencies on low utilized routes; both operationally and for cost, that could be implemented with the lowest impact to passenger’s time and comfort.

Each identified efficiency was further reviewed with leadership of the affected business areas and assessed for possible impacts to change to service. The result of this efficiency review was a Summer Time change for all Shift AM pickups (Base Plant and Aurora) and the reduction of several underutilize routes.

Each change that occurs will be communicated to passengers in advance via Global Notices/ Emails, My Announcements portal, Syncrude Central webpage, the Diversified webpage, and seat drops on each bus seat.

Contractors have been granted access to Syncrude Central through the following link:

Future efficiencies currently underway are a full analysis of route access via the new underpass and alignment with new municipality transit shelters. All efficiencies will be monitored on an ongoing basis for further improvements or adjustments.

Feedback will be responded to via the Transportation email account:
