Some updates of BRT plans





There's some issues I have with it. There are too many stations (25 stations over 22 km). Traffic engineers suggest distances further apart to increase speed.

BRT will rely on true separation from normal traffic. If that can be achieved and you can ensure true rapid transit across the city this will be monumental in changing Saskatoon and pushing it into the future.

The City is also being very aggressive with their infill plans. 50% of all growth is planned to be infill. That could be another 50,000 people living within Circle Drive by 2030. If that is to be the case BRT must work.
