Getting around for Canada Day Celebrations: free bus service after fireworks

For immediate release: Thu, 2022-06-30 07:56

Forget parking and traffic - leave the car at home! Make first and last mile connections to Saskatoon Transit routes with your bike, an Uber, or taxi as you head downtown for the Canada Day celebrations.

Planning your trip is easier than ever when you use Transit, Saskatoon Transit's recommended trip planning app. The Transit app works out suggested trips that easily combine public transit with options like Uber or Riide, and it also lets you pay your Saskatoon Transit fare with just a few taps. 

Transit will be running regular holiday service until 9:00 p.m. (normal fares apply).

After the fireworks, free buses will leave from locations on either side of the river (3rd Avenue northbound/north of 19th Street and Broadway Avenue southbound/south of 12th Street). Buses will stop when requested along the routes noted in the Canada Day 2022 special event bus map!

All Access Transit pickups and drop-offs for the event will be at the temporary stop on 2nd Ave just north of the Alt Hotel. Access Transit will extend its service hours until midnight so customers can take in the fireworks show. Trips must be booked in advance as per normal booking procedures and subscriptions do not apply on statutory holiday
