Saskatoon Transit service changes – effective July 1, 2018

For immediate release: Tue, 2018-06-26 10:05
TU18-401

Starting Sunday, July 1, 2018 several significant adjustments will go into effect on Saskatoon Transit routes to better serve customers. Feedback from our customers is important to us and was collected in the form of an online survey and public and internal consultations in the spring. Feedback received has been reflected in the route updates.

Transit customers are encouraged to learn about the route changes before they take effect on July 1. An overview of the affected routes is available on postcards obtainable from drivers and at the Customer Service Centre in the downtown terminal. New schedules are available at SaskatoonTransit.ca/2018-Service-Changes or by phoning the Customer Service Centre at 306-975-3100.

All changes are made in an effort to move to a model based on higher frequency, to better meet the needs of citizens. By offering high-frequency service along main corridors like ten-minute frequency on Preston Avenue and Attridge Drive to Nelson Road/Lowe Road, Saskatoon Transit can provide a more convenient and quicker daily commute, drastically reducing wait and travel times and improving reliability.
