In 2014 STC conducted a public survey to gauge demand for a commuter bus service connecting Warman and Martensville to Saskatoon. Warman has a population of 7,084 (2011 Census) while Martensville is 7,716 for a service area population of 14,800 (2011 Census). As shown in the screenshot of the survey, they proposed a single peak-hour, peak direction trip thus: Morning inbound Warman Dep 6:50AM Martensville Arr 7:03AM Dep 7:05AM Saskatoon Costco Arr 7:15AM Saskatoon SIAST Arr 7:25AM Saskatoon STC Arr 7:30AM Evening outbound Saskatoon STC Dep 5:00PM Saskatoon SIAST Dep 5:05PM Saskatoon Costco Dep 5:15PM Martensville Arr 5:25PM Dep 5:27PM Warman Arr 5:40PM and they proposed a monthly pass costing $269.00. I think it's interesting that they did it, but I might have tweeked their proposal just a little bit. In particular I would have included the University of Saskatchewan as the endpoint of the morning run, and the origin of the evening run.
DavidW posted a topic in SaskatchewanIn 2014 STC conducted a public survey to gauge demand for a commuter bus service connecting Regina with three towns to the east, Balgonie, White City and Pilot Butte. The 2011 Census gives the following populations: Balgonie 1,625, White City 2,098, and Pilot Butte 1,848 for a service area population of 5,571 (2011 Census). As shown in the screenshot of the survey, they proposed a single peak-hour, peak direction trip thus: Morning inbound. Pilot Butte Dep 6:55AM Balgonie Arr 7:06AM Dep 7:08AM White City Arr 7:20AM Dep 7:21AM Regina SupSt. Arr 7:31AM (2055 Prince of Wales Dr) Regina STC Arr 7:45AM Evening Outbound Regina STC Dep 5:00PM Regina SupSt. Dep 5:15PM (2055 Prince of Wales Dr) White City Arr 5:25PM Dep 5:27PM Balgonie Arr 5:39PM Dep 5:41PM Pilot Butte Arr 5:52PM and they proposed a monthly pass costing $269.00. I think it's interesting that they did it, but I think the proposal has a couple of misses. For one, why would they start in Pilot Butte and head east, away from Regina, to Balgonie before turning back westbound to pick up White City on the way into Regina? Wouldn't it make more sense to start in Balgonie, use secondary highway 624 between White City and Pilot Butte, and then enter Regina on highway 46? Secondly, for a commuter service I would serve the University of Regina. Students would be a significant market for a service like this. Here would be my route:
