NEW HIGH FREQUENCY TRANSIT ROUTES SCHEDULED FOR ATTRIDGE DRIVE AND PRESTON AVENUE

On July 1, 2018, Saskatoon Transit will introduce a high frequency Route Schedule for College Drive, Preston Avenue and Attridge Drive and increase the frequency on the 60 series bus routes (including Confederation, Blairmore, Montgomery, Hampton Village and Kensington) to the University.

Saskatoon Transit will continue to offer high frequency service along main corridors with the addition of 10 minute frequency along College Drive, Preston Avenue and Attridge Drive up to Nelson Road/Lowe Road throughout week days, with 30 minute frequency during evenings, weekends, and statutory holidays. The 60 series bus routes will see schedule changes to accommodate 7.5 minute service to the University via the Downtown terminal through peak hours.

This change will support the transition of Saskatoon Transit’s conventional service to a frequency versus coverage based model.

For details on the changes, join us at the Alice Turner Library on Tuesday April 17th for a Come and Go event between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. or visit SaskatoonTransit.ca and take our survey.

The City will be sending out a news release about this at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 26. At that time, more information, including frequently asked questions and the history of Fire Station No. 5, will be available at www.saskatoon.ca/NewServiceModel.
