Updates to School Extra run for 2021-2022 School Year

To better serve more high school students in Moose Jaw, City of Moose Jaw Transit has implemented some changes to our daily “School Extra Run” bus service, effective Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

The changes were made in consultation with Prairie South School Division and Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, and include:

  • Following South Hill pickups, the School Extra bus will route to the Northwest and provide service to an additional seven bus stops before linking up with the Sunningdale/Route 2 bus at the Kinsmen Sportsplex.
  • At the Kinsmen Sportsplex, Vanier Collegiate students on board the School Extra bus will transfer to the Sunningdale/Route 2 bus.
  • At the Kinsmen Sportsplex, Sunningdale-area students attending Central Collegiate or A.E. Peacock Collegiate will transfer to the School Extra bus.
  • After drop-off at Central and Peacock, the School Extra bus will link up with all regular bus routes downtown at the Main St./High St. transfer point.
  • At the transfer point at 8:33 am, students from all regular routes can transfer to the School Extra bus to be taken up Main St. and to Vanier Collegiate.
  • At the end of the school day the School Extra bus will pick up at Main St./Oxford St. West and Main St./Ross St. West, proceeding to South Hill and then the NW area of the city, completing the route in the same order as the morning (first on at the start of the day will be first off at the end of the day).

South Hill families should note that the School Extra bus will not make all stops on Route 4/Westmount. To ensure expedient service the number of bus stops on School Extra have been reduced to those centrally located to serve most students within a 500m walking radius. The revised School Extra route schedule can be viewed at MooseJaw.ca/Transit.

Monthly student bus passes are available for purchase at City Hall, Kinsmen Sportsplex, Central Collegiate, A.E. Peacock Collegiate and Vanier Collegiate, and may be used for the School Extra bus as well as regular Transit service.

While COVID-19 measures are subject to change, currently we have no capacity restrictions on our buses, and while masks are encouraged, they are not mandatory at this time. Monthly student bus passes and tickets are available for purchase at City Hall or the Kinsmen Sportsplex, and may be used both for our School Extra run and regular transit services. Please be advised that fares will be enforced and students who do not show their bus pass, provide a ticket or pay the $2.25 fare will not be permitted to ride.

All Moose Jaw residents will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the City Transit system, as well as 2022 Budget priorities, with a public survey that will be released September 1. Families with questions about the School Extra bus routes and schedule may contact our Transit department by phone at 306-694-4488 or by email at transit@moosejaw.ca.

SATURDAY TRANSIT NOW DIAL-A-RIDE BY APPOINTMENT 

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: transit@moosejaw.ca.

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 or fill out our online form found here. 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.

For more information, see the Dial-a-Ride Service page.
