Any seniors can travel anywhere an STC bus goes in Saskatchewan for just $15 all through the month of September. The price applies to anyone aged 60 and over.
For example, normally a senior will pay $57.70 for a return fare from Unity to Saskatoon. In the month of September, the cost will be only $30 – almost half price!
“We want seniors in Saskatchewan to view bus travel as a comfortable and convenient transportation alternative,” Minister responsible for STC Jennifer Campeau said. “STC’s senior seat sale gives seniors an affordable and green way to visit family and friends across Saskatchewan.”
Every passenger on a Saskatchewan Transportation Ccompany bus potentially means one less vehicle on the road – making the province both safer and greener. Bus travel is not only the greener alternative, it is also an affordable alternative.
“This is the sixth year that STC has offered our senior seat sale,” STC president and CEO Shawn Grice said. “We’re always impressed with the number of senior riders that come out and take advantage of the savings during sale months.”
Seniors can find out more about the sale on STC’s website at www.stcbus.com/seniorsale or on STC’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/STCbus. Sale tickets can be purchased at any STC agency but remember to to bring your identification with you.
Seniors can fill up their calendars with fun, family and friends, travelling with Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) this month. From May 1 to 31, seniors 60 and over can ride anywhere STC goes for $12 one-way.
STC travels to more than 250 communities in Saskatchewan, giving seniors across the province a chance to travel at a great price. The standard senior fare for a one-way trip between Regina and Saskatoon is $34.80, which is more than $20 in savings if a senior purchases the same one-way ticket in May.
“We’re always happy to give our valued senior riders a great deal and our senior seat sale is our most popular promotion,” STC president and CEO Shawn Grice said. “STC ridership sees a significant increase during the sale month as seniors take advantage of this great opportunity.”
Seniors took more than 10,000 trips during the spring Senior Seat Sale in 2013. It would take more than 200 buses at capacity to transport that many riders. Seniors should bring their identification with them at time of purchase and can buy their sale tickets at any STC agency.
In Unity, you can buy your tickets at Frenchie’s Pizza. They are the local STC representatives.
