City hall to examine free evening transit service

Saskatoon StarPhoenix: "City of Saskatoon staff intend to look at the idea as a way to get more people used to taking the bus. The proposal came from Saskatoon astronomer Stan Shadick in a letter to city hall that was reviewed at Monday’s meeting of city council’s transportation committee.

“Buses seem to run mainly empty at these times,” Shadick wrote. The transit lobby group Bus Riders of Saskatoon sent a representative, Cameron McMillan, to voice support for the idea. Coun. Darren Hill asked McMillan whether he was aware of any municipalities that have gone down this route, but McMillan said no.

“I’m all about creating new riders and new rider groups,” Hill said. The committee voted to pass the suggestion on to city hall staff for a look."
