If you are arriving at the YEG, and you will not be picked up by someone, then you have plenty of options for available transportation services at the airport! From private and public buses to taxis and rental cars, you choose whichever option suits you best!

For starters, you can catch one of the many public and private buses that pick up passengers from the YEG. The location of where you pick up a bus at depends on which bus you are waiting for. For instance, the Ebus, the Leduc Transit, and the 747 all pick up passengers from different locations. However, whichever bus it may be, you should expect to wait outside one of the following doors:

Door #8
Door #10
Door #25

If you are hoping to catch a taxi, you should head over to door #9.

Do keep in mind that, even though rideshare applications such as Uber are allowed to operate on the grounds of the YEG, they do not pick up passengers from the same location as other taxi services. Instead, they pick up passengers outside of door #10.
