ATU Job Action

Route Detour :

ATU continues to direct its members to take job action. Saskatoon Transit is making every attempt to provide service with as little impact to you as possible. Current job action is meaning delays, cancellations and over-crowding on some buses throughout the system. As a result Saskatoon Transit has been forced to make the following service adjustments to afternoon and evening service:
Regular Routes:

Passengers will be required to catch Route 4 Willowgrove Square leaving the Downtown Terminal at 2:45 p.m. or 3:45 p.m. There will be hourly service on Route 4 Willowgrove Square from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. from the Downtown Terminal.

Saskatoon Transit will continue to keep customers informed by issuing service alerts when made aware of any disruptions or delays. Service alerts can be viewed at saskatoontransit.ca, saskatoon.ca, on Twitter at @stoontransit or @YXEserviceAlert, through Transit App and in Google Transit.
Transit administration may not be aware of all immediate job action but will make efforts to inform the public of delays or disruptions as the information is made available. During such times Saskatoon Transit will make every attempt to maintain an appropriate level of service based on the resources available, but may be forced to minimize service if required. We encourage you to plan your commute in advance and give yourself extra time since we are experiencing higher volumes of passengers per bus, delays and cancellations.
Individuals who do not have access to the internet can call the Transit Customer Service line at 306-975-3100 but are reminded that wait times may be longer than normal due to job action or higher than normal call volumes.
Access Transit is an essential service, and will continue operating as normal.
The City thanks our citizens, transit customers and our transit employees for their patience and understanding as we have attempted to reach a contract settlement with ATU.
