The Edmonton Pedway system is a network connecting office buildings, shopping centres, and parkades in downtown Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It consists of approximately 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) of year-round climate-controlled underground tunnels, and walkways between the second floors of buildings, approximately 15 feet (4.6 m) above ground. The main network connects more than 40 buildings and parkades, and three of the five Edmonton Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations in the downtown area.[1][2]

The Pedway system is integrated with public transit via climate controlled access to LRT stations.

The pedestrian tunnel from Grandin station to the Alberta Legislature Building.

Throughout the city, there are some independent connections between buildings that are not linked to the wider system, as well as shorter tunnels leading from the surface directly to transit. Notable examples include connections to the Alberta Legislature Buildings that leads to Grandin station, and networks connecting buildings at the University of Alberta and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
