There are two or three key routes from Central Edmonton to North Edmonton. Fort Road (with the Capital Line LRT), 97 Street and 127 Street (constrained by CN and the Calder/Walker yards). Clareview is higher density,, and much of the other north residential is between Fort Road and 142 Street.
The 523 is an oddball. Since the start of the BNR, outbound in the AM has been 10 minute frequency, and inbound in the PM at 12 minutes. The flip side is 20 minutes outbound in the AM and 24 minutes inbound in the PM. During the summer AM inbound drops to 12 minutes, and I forget now what outbound in the PM drops to. I believe it was last September some last minute frequency increases were implemented on the 7, 523 and one or two other routes. On the 523 the service averaged every 20 minutes, but the buses were spaced so that at certain times there were 2 routes 523's running 2 minutes apart during the midday. It was a consequence of not properly planning the new services, which in the case of the 7 and 523, interlined with each other at the CN tower and so the additional buses were just kind of dumped into the schedule whether it made sense or not. This was fixed and the 523 received 20 minute midday service, properly spaced. At the same time, it wouldn't have made a lot of of sense to have the PM outbound 523's running at 24 minute frequencies when midday any direction was 20 minutes, so, they got a increase to 20 minutes.But an interesting addition is route 523 from Downtown to Mill Woods which I believe is unique in that it's 10 minute frequency in the outbound (from downtown) direction.
If you spot any mistakes, let me know and I'll be happy to fix them.
Yeah, he’s definitely been to Calgary by now but not Edmonton if I recall correctlyI may be wrong, but I still don't think he's actually been to Edmonton. I know there was a video from a year or two ago where he mentioned that he hasn't been to Alberta to see Edmonton or Calgary's transit systems firsthand.
