Moose Jaw is considering adding a commuter bus between the city and Regina.
In a presentation recently made to council, a proposal detailed to work with Saskatchewan Polytechnic to help its students get to the post-secondary school’s campuses.
Spokesperson Craig Hemingway said reviews on costs and revenue are being done.
“They did some real rough estimates based on a $25 return fee. It could potentially be profitable, not a big profit, but potentially profitable. It is real early and they are really rough numbers.”
According to the city’s estimate, 40 students might use the service each day, adding it could make a profit of $34,000 per year.
This discussion follows the closure of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) in May, and the end of Greyhound’s Prairie bus service in October.
“During discussions last week, we indicated to council there needed to be a little more of an extensive review before any final recommendations were made,” Hemingway said.
The proposed Saskatchewan Polytechnic plan would see a bus shuttle between the Moose Jaw and Regina campuses, in the mornings and evenings from Monday to Friday.
