New bus route planned

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - FRONT PAGE - SARAH LADIK

While the STC won’t be run­ning buses from the cap­i­tal to the Friendly City any­more, there should be another op­tion — de­signed es­pe­cially for stu­dents — come this fall.

“We are try­ing to help stu­dents get to SIAST,” said owner of Rider Ex­press, Fi­rat Uray on Fri­day.

The route would take stu­dents from Regina to Moose Jaw’s Saskatchewan Poly­tech­nic cam­pus and back, run­ning ev­ery day ex­cept Sun­days. Uray said the price for stu­dents would be be­tween $10 and $13 per ride, with other trav­ellers pay­ing $15.

The line op­er­ated by STC up un­til this spring took be­tween 25 and 40 stu­dents ev­ery day, ac­cord­ing to Uray. The com­pany is al­ready run­ning a ser­vice be­tween Regina, Saska­toon and Prince Al­bert, which has proven it­self to be a suc­cess.
