On Thursday some changes will be proposed for Regina city transit.
The proposal will come at a City of Regina Community & Protective Services Committee meeting and includes feedback from residents, which the city gathered late last year.
On their website the city says, “Regina is growing, and we need bus service in our newer areas to keep up with the growth.”
Nathan Luhning, Manager of Business Development for the city of Regina said while the changes won’t be major, the southeast will be a big focus point.
“There’s also a brand new route that’s being proposed called the Arcola Express, it would service areas around the Sandra Schmirler Community Centre, Greens on Gardiner and The Creeks,” said Luhning.
Luhning said that route is designed to get people in and out of downtown and to those areas in a quick fashion.
He added the southeast is where they are seeing higher density developments and an increased need for transit service.
The proposed route changes will not result in extra costs for taxpayers.
There would be no impact to the operating budget because current service would be reallocated to provide the additional bus services in the proposed changes.
