Riding with Saskatoon Transit means you’re sharing space with other passengers and our operators. Here are some basic etiquette tips to help make everyone’s trip as enjoyable as possible.
- Courtesy seating - All of our buses are equipped with designated seats for passengers who may need a little extra help. If you are in one of these seats, offering it to someone who may need it more than you do is a simple and easy way to improve everyone’s experience on the bus.
- Personal audio devices - Listening to music can be a great way to pass the time while riding on the bus. But if other people can hear it, it’s too loud. Please respect that everyone likes different kinds of music or that some like to enjoy a quiet ride, and keep your music to a reasonable volume.
- Food and drink - If you are going to eat or drink while riding with Saskatoon Transit, please try to be tidy and take your garbage with you to properly dispose of in a garbage or recycling bin.
- Cell phones - Talking on your cell phone is acceptable behaviour while riding the bus, but keeping your conversation quiet means you aren’t sharing it with the rest of the bus. For your own privacy and for the courtesy of other passengers please keep your voice quiet.
- Keep aisles clear - Travelling with bags, laptops, strollers or other items is acceptable on Saskatoon Transit, but please remember to keep them tucked away as much as possible to keep aisles clear so people can move through the bus safely and easily. It’s also a kind gesture to remove your items from an available seat to allow room for another passenger to sit.
- Doorways are for entering and exiting the bus - When the bus is full, it can be tempting to stand or lean near an exit. But to ensure that people can safely get on or off the bus we ask that you keep the exits as clear as possible.
- Sharing space - After a long day, it's nice to be able to sit down and relax on the bus. Please keep free seats clear of items and available for someone to use.
