A new shuttle bus, to start in February, may ease parking pressure at Regina's hospitals.

The health region's initial plan is to have staff use the shuttle bus to move between different locations.

The bus will shuttle between the Pasqua and the General hospitals, and between the General Hospital and the Wascana Rehab Centre.

Then, in March, the region hopes to introduce a park and ride shuttle service for staff.

The region is also thinking about a parkade near the General Hospital.

According to the region, the General Hospital could use another 600 parking spots.
