Ding In The New Year with Free Transit Service on New Year’s Eve

For immediate release: December 30, 2015 - 9:10am

On New Year's Eve, the ride is on us!

Saskatoon Transit will provide free transit and Access Transit service on New Year’s Eve. Enjoy yourself this New Year’s Eve, and don’t worry about driving!

Free bus service will run on Thursday, December 31, from 8:00 p.m. to 2:45 a.m. (time may vary slightly by route) on a weekday evening schedule. Customers may also flag down a bus at any point along the route, not just at specified stops, if they are in need.  When flagging a bus please use caution: stand on the curb at a safe place for the bus to stop and raise your hand to get the operators attention.

For residents attending the New Year's festivities at Prairieland Park, Saskatoon Transit will provide direct shuttle service from the Downtown Bus Terminal.

Departure times for the Prairieland Direct Shuttle will be every 30 minutes starting at 8:00 p.m. from the bus stop in front of the south entrance of 2nd Avenue Lofts on 23rd Street. Drop off and pick up at Prairieland Park will happen at the Ruth Street & Herman Avenue stop, just outside of the Prairieland Park gates.

Alternately, starting at 6:30 p.m. service to Prairieland Park will also be provided by Route 1 Exhibition at 30 minutes past the hour.

Please Note: Route 14 will not be running to the North Industrial area after 7:00 p.m.
