Fourteen years ago a Transit operator wanted to do something to support those in need. Eroca Pellerin approached her managers with an idea to fill a city bus full of groceries to donate to the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.

Eroca will be behind the wheel this year as “Rock 102’s Stuff-the-Bus” takes place at the Saskatoon Co-op Food Store at the Centre Mall.*

Saskatoon Transit serves 40,000 people every day from all parts of the city and in all walks of life, including some of our most vulnerable citizens.

The City of Saskatoon wants to warn residents about a texting scam where scammers pose as City of Saskatoon Customer Service Staff.

The City was contacted by a concerned resident who received what they perceived as scam texts from someone posing as both Saskatoon Light & Power and SaskPower.

The scam text reportedly indicated that the resident either had a utility refund or that they owed money, and provided a web link to provide banking information.

As a reminder, Saskatoon Transit is upgrading the onboard Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) in its buses. This upgrade will enhance the delivery of real-time bus information. Riders using mobile and web apps may experience interruptions to real-time bus location information during the upgrade. This will not affect the ability to plan trips as the apps will continue to provide bus schedules and service alerts.

This implementation is on track to be complete in mid-December.  

Saskatoon Transit thanks you for your patience while this important upgrade is completed.
