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.
There will be a Remembrance Day Ceremony at the University of Saskatchewan on Saturday, November 11. We wanted to extend an invitation to the members of your community because we are located near your neighbourhood.
Following the city-wide service at SaskTel Centre, there will be a wreath laying service at the Memorial Gates (near the College Drive entrance to Royal University Hospital) at 1:30 pm. A reception will follow at Louis’ Loft. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Help us get the word out!
We would appreciate you sharing this with people in your community. I have a package containing a poster and social media images available for use.
The Saskatoon Fire Department strives to provide a four-minute traveling response time to all areas in the City of Saskatoon. Geographic modelling shows this level of service and safety will be possible to Sutherland and University area neighbourhoods when Fire Station No. 5 is relocated from 105 Street and Central Avenue to closer to the intersection of Preston Avenue and College Drive.
SFD will be hosting two public information sessions, for you and your residents to attend and learn more about this project.
