At their latest meeting of Regina City Council, those present heard from delegation who’d like to see increased transit service on Sunday.
Council heard from Dylan Morin, a man with a disability who requires public transit to get him to and from the programs he partakes in.

- City passes motion imposing rules on naming streets in future developments
With transit service ending at 7:00 pm on Sunday, Morin said it’s important to make sure people can afford to have transit services.
“I know that most individuals want to see service improved that can’t afford to pay for a taxi.”
The plight of Morin and others who have difficulty using transit is a position Mayor Michael Fougere is empathetic to.
“We are growing and expanding our service,” he said. “Compared to what we had five years ago, it’s a remarkably improved service, but it could still be better.”
Council voted to move this matter on to city administration to examine whether it’s feasible for the city to increase transit service on Sundays.
