Cold weather continues to affect Transit service
The cold temperatures continue to cause shortages of buses and delays.
Cold temperatures can cause things like the ‘check engine’ light to turn on and cause condensation in the air system which may freeze valves leading to suspension issues or frozen brakes. In either situation, to ensure buses are safe to operate, a mechanic must verify the condition of the bus or complete any repairs before it can return to the road.
Before leaving to catch the bus, check for service alerts on the Transit app or Google Maps Transit on desktop. “Pin” the routes taken most often in the Transit app to receive push notifications about service disruptions. Service alert information can also be found at SaskatoonTransit.ca on twitter @stoontransit or by calling 306.975.3100.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
