Saskatoon’s Green Infrastructure Strategy (Strategy), which forms the vision, actions, initiatives and mapping for Saskatoon’s Green Network is now complete.

Green infrastructure creates a network of natural, enhanced, and engineered assets that protect, restore or enhance green space.  Saskatoon’s green spaces are under pressure from urban growth and increasing stress from climate-related impacts such as invasive pests, flooding, heat and drought.  When the quality of green space diminishes, ecosystem services such as fresh water, storm protection and air quality are at risk.

The City of Saskatoon is now accepting registrations for the 2020 Green Cart subscription program. Residents are encouraged to participate in this program to divert yard and food waste from the landfill and help in the City’s efforts to achieve 70% waste diversion.

The Green Cart program offers convenient front-street collection of yard and food waste every two weeks from May 4 to November 6, 2020. Current black cart (garbage) and blue cart (recycling) customers are eligible for this optional subscription-based program.

January 31, 2020 - 6:00am

Annual ridership has continued to grow year over year resulting in a 2.5% increase in conventional ridership and 2.2% increase in Access Transit ridership.   

“I am very happy with this result as it shows that we continue to attract more riders to our system and those who are already using transit are using it more often. I attribute the increase to more reliable and frequent routing along our transit corridors,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit.
