Project Background

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.
