      Students living in on-campus residences and others with special circumstances may apply for an exemption. The central transfer point for most bus routes has always been the block of 23rd Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues and the neighbouring corners on 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Will you be returning to Regina by bus? The industry standard is to replace buses on an year cycle; by this standard, Saskatoon Transit's fleet is quite old. This route is used daily by locals and backpackers.

      Taking the bus creates the smallest carbon footprint compared to other modes of transport. A satellite facility or entirely new facility in a different location, probably an industrial park, is recommended within the next 5 years. Work with urban planners to design neighbourhoods that work with public transit and discourage use of private vehicles. Most of the recommendations of the Short Term Plan have been implemented, and the Long Term Plan is being carried out, subject of course to funding and other considerations.

      A review of fare collection options, and in particular smart card technology, should be undertaken within a year. Issues include staffing, fleet replacement, refurbishing older buses, maintenance, new technologies such as emissions Saskatoons electric transit book and "smart" fare collection. Allow buses to avoid congestion by "turning the lights green" for them, and providing bus-only lanes where needed, for instance at the approaches to University Bridge. If you are looking for the return bus journey, check out buses from Saskatoon to Regina. Most of the recommendations of the Short Term Plan have been implemented, and the Long Term Plan is being carried out, subject of course to funding and other considerations.
