Bus Rapid Transit is a new type of transit service for Saskatoon that will help connect you from where you are to where you want to be. It forms the backbone of a transit system built around frequent, direct transit links.
On April 29, 2019, Saskatoon City Council Approved the final routing for the Bus Rapid Transit system, the cornerstone of the Plan for Growth. Work on design will now begin with construction slated to start in 2022.
Saskatoon needs a variety of transportation options in order to meet the needs of a city of 500,000. The Transit Plan charts a course to get Saskatoon’s transit system ready for this growth by making transit an attractive option for current and future residents. The plan includes the introduction of a Bus Rapid Transit system, and identifies changes needed to the current system to support high-frequency, direct service along the city’s major corridors. In turn, this will support transit-oriented development that will make efficient use of existing infrastructure
