Saskatoon Transit wants to know what riders think of 2014 route changes. (CBC )

People who ride the bus in Saskatoon are invited to open house meetings this week to talk about proposed route changes for 2014.

'It just makes us have a better service in the long run' - Saskatoon Transit Director Bob Howe

Saskatoon Transit said the changes being proposed for this year are not dramatic, but rather tweaking that’s designed to bring busses to the people.

"You know, going where the masses are to try and take the majority of our customers to a destination,” said Director of Saskatoon Transit Bob Howe.

Howe said the changes are based on ideas and feedback gathered from riders. Now transit has a proposal ready to present to city council. Before that happens, however, Howe wants the public to have another opportunity to weigh in.

"We are always interested in what our customers have to say about transit, be it good or bet it bad. I mean, it just makes us have a better service in the long run."

If approved, the route changes wouldn’t take effect until late summer.

Transit is offering free rides to the open house meetings. Shuttle buses will run every 15 minutes between open house locations and the nearest mall terminal.
