BRT Follow-up

Bus Rapid Transit

Thank you to everyone who participated in one of the 19 engagement sessions we held over the last few weeks. In case you weren’t able to come to one of the events, we invite you to take a look at the information presented at the sessions, including route maps. You can find them on the Transit Plan engagement page under the Getting Involved tab.

Once you have had a chance to go over all the documents, send your preference on route options along with any other comments to brt@saskatoon.ca. All feedback received before 8:00 a.m. on January 4, 2019, will be included in the report to City council, which will be submitted in the first quarter of 2019. Feedback received after the January 4 deadline will be kept on file as part of the project.

The BRT Project Team would like to thank everyone for their interest and active involvement in 2018.

Information will be added to the Growth Plan website as it becomes available.

If you have any questions about BRT, or would like to participate in future engagement activities, please contact BRT@saskatoon.ca. If you have any questions about the Plan for Growth in general, please contact the Growth Plan Implementation Team at growth@saskatoon.ca.

City BRT Sessions

As a stakeholder in the future of Downtown and Nutana, we want to hear from you! The City of Saskatoon will be holding two Come & Go Engagement Sessions in both the Downtown and Nutana areas to provide information on the proposed Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, as well as additional information on the proposed Downtown All Ages and Abilities (AAA) Cycling Network. We want to work with you to ensure that the needs of everyone who uses Saskatoon’s roads are met.

These engagement sessions are an opportunity for you to review potential BRT routing and Downtown AAA Cycling Network options. We will listen to your comments and gather your input on preferences and considerations on both initiatives, prior to City Council deciding on these plans in early 2019. The proposed BRT routing options are shown below. Please consider attending an engagement session to have your say about the future of transportation in Saskatoon.
