Bus Riders Asked to Share “Bus Stop Blues” Replacement/Renewal Campaign
Saskatoon Transit wants people to nominate bus stops for improvements or replacement with help of Twitter and Facebook.
The “Bus Stop Blues” Campaign kicks-off today on Saskatoon Transit Twitter, City of Saskatoon Twitter and the City of Saskatoon’s Facebook page. Over the next three weeks, using the hashtag #busstopbluesyxe, residents will be asked to post a photo and the location of the stop where they would like to see improvements.
“Saskatoon Transit is listening and reacting to customer feedback,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit. “This is an opportunity to engage with the public and for the public to help shape the future of Saskatoon Transit. Our goal is to continually improve the transit experience.”
Following the campaign, bus shelters and stops will be chosen for either replacement or renewal.
The Government of Canada has provided more than $1.5 million through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) for transit shelter improvements and network accessibility throughout the city - $300,000 will be devoted to the bus shelter and stop improvements.
Saskatoon Transit values input from citizens and these bus shelter upgrades will work toward the principals outlined in the Growth Plan to 500,000.
