People who rely on a city bus to get around Saskatoon are once again being forced to adjust their travel plans.
Saskatoon Transit released a list of bus cancellations on Thursday, which impacts both school and regular routes in the city.
The Amalgamated Transit Union continues to direct members to take job action, which has led to delays, cancellations and overcrowding on some buses throughout the system.
Many passengers have been left scrambling because of last minute changes to routes.
However, Director of Saskatoon Transit Jim McDonald said they will start giving passengers a little more notice to prepare and adjust their plans.
“This week has been a bit of a mish-mash in terms of service that’s actually going out on the road, because of these late breaking announcements,” McDonald said. “We’re going to try to give people a bigger, longer heads up next week.”
McDonald said they’re just “rolling with the punches” right now.
“We’re taking a look at all of the options,” McDonald said. “We’re trying to get the best service out there for everybody.”
As a result of job action being taken on Thursday, Saskatoon Transit has been forced to make the following service adjustments to afternoon service on Nov. 17:
Several school routes were impacted Thursday, including the bus that goes to Briarwood from Aden Bowman High School.
“The school told us the bus was coming,” said student Shaelynn Marjoram.
“We waited for 15 minutes in the cold and one of the other bus drivers told us our bus wasn’t coming.”
Marjoram had to call her mother to pick her up.
“It was really annoying and if my Mom couldn’t come get me I would have been stranded.”
