Good Friday bus changes may affect Saskatoon Black Sabbath fans

Holiday bus schedules mean some Black Sabbath fans may need to find a ride home

Concert goers may need to find another way home

Black Sabbath will take the stage at Credit Union Centre tonight. (

After a night of rocking out to some of heavy metal's biggest stars, you may need to call your mom to come and get you.

The Good Friday holiday means city buses in Saskatoon are running on a Sunday schedule. Check the city of Saskatoon's website for the exact service end times.

Concert goers can take the Park & Ride shuttles to and from Credit Union Centre but there will be no regular bus service to get them home after 6 p.m. CST. (CBC)

That means there may not be connections from the downtown terminal after the big Black Sabbath show.

The regular Credit Union Centre Park & Ride program is up and running. Officials are advising concert goers to park their cars at one of the major malls or the downtown bus mall and hop on the shuttle.

The special shuttle buses will run every 15 minutes beginning at 6:45 p.m. CST and again right after the show.

And, as always if you've had a little too much fun call a cab.


  • A previous version of the story said that on Good Friday, city buses would stop running at 6 p.m. In fact, buses are running on a Sunday schedule, and service end times vary by route, with some buses running until 9 p.m. or later.
