Bus Buddy Program
About the Program
The Saskatoon Council on Aging’s Bus Buddy Program is a safe and personal introduction to the Saskatoon transit system through the assistance of trained and qualified Bus Buddy volunteers.
Volunteers in the program will help participants of Bus Buddy program gain the tools and confidence to travel safely in and around the city of Saskatoon.
How it Works
Senior volunteers will be screened and matched with seniors who want to learn how to ride city buses with ease. The Bus Buddy Volunteers will make arrangements to accompany the participant on several bus trips until she/he is comfortable taking the bus alone.
Orientation and training will be provided at the Saskatoon Council on Aging about:
The City Transit system
Planning bus trips
Reading transit routes
Locating bus stops
How to Get Involved
If you would like to volunteer or learn how to use the bus call the Council on Aging at 306-652-2255 for more information
