Hopefully this isn’t needed but a great idea from the City of Saskatoon
This Halloween, parents are reminded to tell their little trick or treaters that Saskatoon Transit’s SafeBus Program is there to help if they are in trouble. Children can get on a bus at any bus stop if they are lost, cold, frightened, hurt, or in trouble. Transit operators have direct 911 access to call for assistance.
Children asking for help do not need money to get on a SafeBus. To get an approaching bus operator’s attention, children in need of assistance should stand on the sidewalk and hold their hand up as the bus approaches. The operator will recognize this as a sign of distress and stop to help. The City reminds all parents to tell their children to never step onto the roadway to flag down a bus as this is very dangerous.
The SafeBus Program is part of the City of Saskatoon’s ongoing commitment to improving the safety of citizens and enhancing the quality of life in Saskatoon.
