Overview of Engagement Opportunities
The Transit Plan project anticipates a number of public and stakeholder engagement opportunities starting in Winter 2017 - 2018:
- Public / Stakeholder Engagement Event(s) - December 2017 - February 2018
- Major Public Engagement Options Event - March 7, 2018
A number of the City's major Plan for Growth initiatives will be brought together at these options events to give the community an opportunity to see the future direction of the City, and provide insight on the implementation land-use and transit options we need to consider as we prepare to welcome 250,000 people in the next few decades.
Online Surveys - February 2018
In parallel to our in-person engagement strategy, the City of Saskatoon and HDR are launching three surveys this February to give stakeholders and residents an opportunity to weigh in on the City's proposed functional plan for a Bus Rapid Transit system. The surveys are open to the public and will be distributed to the Citizen Advisory Panel, and the Plan for Growth Newsletter Subscribers.
SURVEYS OPEN: February 7, 2018 / SURVEYS CLOSE: February 22, 2018
This survey outlines proposed route and exclusive runningway options, and asks you to share your preferences.
This survey shares the preferred platform locations and station shelter designs with you, and asks you to provide your opinions on the proposed areas.
This survey outlines the proposed Transit Network Reconfiguration Plan routes for your feedback.

We want to work with you to understand how these changes may affect you.

What We’re Presenting
Proposed Functional Plan, Station Designs, Park and Ride Strategy, and Route Reconfiguration Options for the existing Saskatoon Transit network.
What We’re Asking From You
In December, you helped us understand your thoughts and concerns about our initial Preferred Configuration. You told us what you need in Saskatoon’s Future Transit System – now we want to invite you to come and see how we have incorporated what you told us into our Functional Plan. We’d like to ask you if we missed anything.
Why Your Participation Matters
We want to build a future transit system that works for our city, and we want to do it in smart and sustainable ways. You understand our city. You are a big part of our plan. We need your participation and ideas to successfully implement these initiatives.
