SENIORS RIDE FOR JUST $10 IN MAY
For the month of May, seniors 60+ will be able to ride anywhere within the Saskatchewan Transportation Company's network for $10 one-way.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for seniors to experience the excellent service of STC while travelling our beautiful province for a very low cost," said President and CEO Shawn Grice in announcing the first seat sale of 2011.
STC reaches 290 communities with passenger and freight services. The extensive coverage STC provides affords Saskatchewan seniors province-wide access to this offer.
"We want as many people as possible to experience the comfort, cleanliness, environmental-friendliness and efficiency of bus travel," said Grice. "With this sale, seniors can sit back and enjoy the ride."
STC offered a similar promotion for seniors in both May and September of 2010. Over 20,000 seniors took part in the sale during the two months.
"This offer builds on the momentum of last year's promotions," said Grice, "It is a way of reaching out to one of our major customer bases to promote the positive experience of bus travel."
Transport Canada reports bus travel as having the lowest social cost (air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, noise, road congestion, and accidents) per kilometer than any other form of transportation.
