Regina Transit to change service hours
To support our continued commitment to the health, safety and the well-being of the community and our employees, Regina Transit is changing transit service hours effective Monday, March 23, 2020.
Weekday service will be replaced by the Saturday service schedule. Saturday service utilizes base routes that cover most of the city. The service reaches major destinations, including hospitals, commercial areas and employment areas.
This will result in a reduction of the frequency of buses from Monday to Friday during peak periods from 15-minute service to 30-minute service. Route 40 Albert Express and 60 Arcola Express will continue to run on weekdays. Service on Saturdays will run on a Sunday service schedule. Sunday and holidays will remain at the same service level.
This service change will help provide a consistent and reliable schedule for our community during these unprecedented times. It will also reduce the impact to our bus operators who are on the front line every day.
Over the past week, Regina Transit has experienced a reduction of more than 60 per cent in weekday ridership from 26,000 rides per weekday to 10,000 per weekday.
Customers are required to use the rear doors for both entering and exiting to increase the distance between themselves and the operators. The front doors remain available for those who use a mobility device or require the low floor bus service. Transit fares are waived for both conventional and paratransit service.
