Saskatoon Transit offers free, regular transit service for K–12 students, teachers and chaperones for class field trips between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on weekdays for a maximum of 35 passengers (students, teachers and chaperons) per trip.
Teachers can apply for their free trip through the online form below. All trips must be booked a minimum of two weeks in advance to allow time for processing and to ensure there are no double bookings (we can't have more than one class on a bus at a time). Changes to trips cannot be made within the two week period prior to travel. Reminder to check the Transit app prior to your trip for any service changes.
Free transit service eliminates the barrier of transportation costs for teachers wishing to take their students on a class field trip. This program helps to enhance educational and recreational experiences for students by making cultural and recreational activities more accessible. Please note this is not a charter bus.
How To Apply:
1. Fill in the online application form below.
2. When the trip is approved you will be emailed an access code which will allow you to download your ClassPass.
