Does anyone know what those buses are for, parked outside the Valley Garage? Are they retired and being scrapped? They are a bunch of MCI's and a couple New Flyer D40's.

Retired buses. It's where maintenance parks all the dead buses. Usually if one appears there, it's toast.

22nd street is receiving rapid transit service (similar to 8th street) and the surrounding areas will receive separate feeder routes. Changes begin July 2nd. 

Exact numbers and changes to be released soon by Transit

Like I asked before about the buses... Are people able to come and take parts of the retired buses?

Could you define rapid transit for me? Will this be like a BRT? Or just a frequent bus route ?

Sure you are! If you're a Saskatoon Transit mechanic using the parts to repair other buses. If you're not... safe to say no, you're not allowed. No transit agency has ever allowed this.

Saw photos on Instagram of the new 2017 Novas and they have the larger door windows with the small line near the bottom.
