Access Transit served their first customer in 2004, and is currently a part of the family of services offered by Saskatoon Transit. Access Transit serves those who are unable to use conventional transit with safety and dignity.
The public is invited to celebrate National AccessAbility Week and Access Transit’s 15th anniversary on Thursday, May 30, 2019 (10:00.a.m. to 2:00 p.m.). Burgers, hotdogs, coffee and games will be part of the event.
Saskatoon Transit will take this opportunity to further break down barriers, promote inclusion while we celebrate Access Transit and their 15 year history in Saskatoon. Both an Access and conventional bus will be on-site to tour and Transit staff will be available to answer questions regarding the family of services provided.
A lot of work is being done to ensure Transit is accessible to all ages and abilities and this celebration is a great opportunity to showcase just that.

Saskatoon Transit’s 2nd Annual Student Art Contest closes Thursday, May 30. Grade three and seven students can submit artwork representing Active Transportation to their teachers by the end of the school day. Teachers must email Saskatoon Transit (transit.services@Saskatoon.ca) by 5:00 p.m to let us know you have a pick-up.
Two winners will be chosen, one from each grade to have their art displayed on City transit buses throughout the summer.
Grades three and seven were chosen by the school boards to participate in the contest because they both discuss public transportation as part of their curriculum.
Transit is often an overlooked part of Active Transportation, extending all forms of human-powered transportation such as walking, jogging, cycling, skateboarding etc. Watch for the winners and art to be revealed at the end of June.

Bus Rapid Transit — or BRT — routes will travel down 1st Avenue downtown and Broadway Avenue in Nutana. City Council made the decision at its regular business meeting Monday, April 29.
Council opted for BRT dedicated lanes on 1st Avenue downtown and in mixed traffic for Broadway.
The downtown north-south BRT route would run in dedicated transit lanes constructed in the centre of 1st Avenue with two centre median stations. One station is proposed to be constructed at the intersection of 1st Avenue and 21st Street and the other at the intersection of 1st Avenue and 23rd Street.
On Broadway, the mixed traffic plan is to construct two pairs of BRT stations on either side of Broadway Avenue at 12th Street and at 9th Street.
Under this option, there are no dedicated BRT lanes along Broadway Avenue, but Transit Signal Priority measures would be installed in traffic signals. The proposed BRT would mix with motor vehicle traffic that typically travels along Broadway Avenue, as well as vehicles entering and leaving on-street parking spaces.
BRT construction is not expected to begin until 2023 with a planned completion in 2025 and an estimated cost of $7.3 million for the Downtown and Nutana portions, subject to approval of funding.
Downtown Active Transportation Network
Council endorsed a Downtown Active Transportation Network but wants more engagement on the design of sidewalk and cycling infrastructure along approved corridors.
Fourth Avenue bike lanes to be removed
City Council also approved a motion to remove the temporary bike lane demonstration on Fourth Avenue by the end of June.
