 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.

Transit Rides per Capita

“Increase transit ridership to 62 rides per capita” measures our success in making our transit system a more efficient option for people to move around in Saskatoon. 

This target measures our success in making our transit system a more efficient option for people to move around in Saskatoon. Achieving this target means that more people are using transit for their travel needs, thereby reducing road congestion. Higher transit use provides the movement of more people rather than more cars, particularly along key corridors.

Bus ridership will be measured using electronic pass swipes which includes transfers.

The transit target is consistent with the transit rides per capita target identified in the “Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon” strategy for a population in 30 to 40 years that is twice the size of Saskatoon’s current population.

How are we doing?

In 2018, based on electronic pass swipes, bus ridership increased to 33.7 trips per capita.
