With Christmas fast approaching, people are beginning to get ready to go home for the holidays.
The Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) is getting ready for it’s busiest time of the year for buses, with business expected to rise as Christmas approaches.
“From our standpoint right now, we’re probably expecting Friday to be our busiest day based on the timing of Christmas this year,” STC’s Candace Caswell said.
She said with university exams wrapping up and classes ending for Christmas break Wednesday, the number of riders is expected to rise every day.
“You see a lot of grandparents going to visit the grandkids or university students heading home for the holidays or families headed out to visit other parts of their family.”
And if you haven’t decided on going home for Christmas or not, Caswell said you can buy a ticket at the terminal the day you plan on traveling.
“We do encourage you to be at least half an hour there before travel time, probably more because it is going to be busy but we do our best to ensure everyone has a ride,” Casswell said.
She also said unless highways are closed, their bus drivers tend to travel in weather that may cause nervousness in the average person.
