Saskatoon Transit is asking residents to nominate bus stops for improvements or replacement.  

“Connectivity is the driving force of Saskatoon Transit; whether it’s getting our riders where they need to go or gaining insight for new advancements,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit. “We have been focusing on improving the Transit customer experience and bus stops and shelters play a big part in that.  

The Bus Stop Blues campaign is in its third year and kicks-off today, August 27, on Saskatoon Transit Twitter, City of Saskatoon Twitter and the City of Saskatoon’s Facebook page. Over the next four weeks, using the hashtag #BusStopBluesYXESaskatoon Transit is asking residents to post a photo, location and reason why they would like to see improvements.  

Over the past two years 42 bus stops have seen improvements, many of which came from Bus Stop Blues submissions. 

We want people to know we are listening and reacting to their feedback,” says McDonaldThis is an opportunity for the public to help shape the future of Saskatoon Transit in our city.”  

Following the campaign, bus shelters and stops will be classified to see what improvements can be made this year and what improvements may have to wait until the spring. 

This year, Saskatoon Transit has budget to improve approximately 23 bus stops throughout the City of Saskatoon.
