Extended Cold continues to affect service

For immediate release: Wed, 2022-01-05 16:08

The extended cold temperatures continue to cause shortages of buses and delays.  

Cold temperatures can cause 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, riders are encouraged to check for service alerts on the Transit app or Google Maps Transit on desktop. “Favourite” the routes taken most often in the Transit app to receive push notifications about service disruptions. Service alert information can also be found at on Twitter @stoontransit or by calling 306.975.3100. 

Saskatoon Transit thanks riders for their patience and understanding as we work through this period of cold weather.
