Return of the Bus Stop Blues! Residents asked for input on improvements

For immediate release: Thu, 2018-08-23 10:43

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

The Bus Stop Blues campaign kicks-off today on Saskatoon Transit Twitter, City of Saskatoon Twitter and the City of Saskatoon’s Facebook page. Over the next four weeks, using the hashtag #BusStopBluesYXE, Saskatoon Transit is asking residents to post a photo and the location of the bus stop where they would like to see improvements. 

“We started the Bus Stop Blues campaign last fall and found people really responded to it, so we are once again asking residents where they would like to see improvements made,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit.

McDonald says Saskatoon Transit has been focusing on improving the Transit customer experience and bus stops and shelters play a big part in that. “Saskatoon Transit is listening and reacting to customer feedback. This 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.

Saskatoon Transit has allocated funds to improve approximately 23 bus stops throughout the City of Saskatoon.
