City of Moose Jaw Transit Division
SATURDAY TRANSIT BY APPOINTMENT EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2021
Beginning Saturday May 1, 2021, Moose Jaw Transit’s Saturday operation has changed to Dial-a-Ride service.
Approved as part of the 2021 Municipal Budget, fixed route service will no longer be available on Saturdays. Weekday fixed route service will not change.
The change to Saturday service is being implemented in conjunction with an overall review of the City’s Transit service. This summer the City will undertake a public survey that will help inform future decisions on routes, fares and schedules. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments about City of Moose Jaw Transit, including the change to Saturday Dial-A-Ride service, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To schedule a Saturday Dial-A-Ride trip, please call the Transit office at 306-694-4488 between 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, or between 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon on Saturdays. You will need to provide your name, the time and bus stop location for pickup, and the bus stop location for drop off, as well as details for your return trip if required.
To cancel a trip, please give the office a call with as much notice as possible during the hours listed above. Regular Transit fares will apply for Dial-a-Ride service - passes and tickets will be honoured.

Moose Jaw Transit service is provided on four routes which converge in the downtown core in the vicinity of City Hall and the Mae Wilson theatre. Only a few areas of the City are outside of a 300 walking distance (5 minutes) of a bus stop.
Electronic destination signs display the route numbers and names on the buses. The route name is reflective of the area of the city serviced by the route. The route number is also displayed on the curb side and rear of the transit vehicles.
