2020-2022 Projected Asset Preservation Plan

The 2020-2022 Projected Asset Preservation Plan is now available. It includes the asset preservation projects projected for the next three years on our roadway and sidewalk assets, water and sewer assets, as well as our bridges and structures assets. Roadway and Sidewalk asset preservation management is a process of monitoring, maintaining, and preserving our roads and sidewalks effectively throughout their lifecycle. The goal is to employ effective decision-making to optimize a cost-effective mix of treatments, to maximize the number of roads and sidewalks treated to improve the networks as a whole.

Youth Climate Action Forum

As a City Council Strategic Priority Event, Councillors Sarina Gersher and Mairin Loewen hosted a Youth Climate Action Forum for grade 8 to 12 students on October 30, 2019. Over 140 students participated in the event. This event looked to build capacity for youth to engage on climate issues in Saskatoon. Youth bring important voices and energy to climate change conversations and actions, but are often missing in the more formal decision-making processes.

ClassPass Program is a hit with teachers and students

The numbers are in after two full years of offering the program, proving it's been well received. Since the program’s inception, over 1,000 requests have been approved - providing free transit services to 26,451 students for class field trips. Most field trips take place in May and June with 2,256 participants in May 2019 and 2,323 participants in June 2019. Saskatoon Transit’s ClassPass program is a resounding success!
