Transit

Fort Sask Transit (FST) provides two local routes that serve most regions of Fort Saskatchewan and connects riders to the Clareview LRT Station commuter bus.

Accessibility

In an effort to improve transit access for users with limited mobility, the new FST buses are specially equipped with accessible ramps and the ability to kneel and lower. Riders may request the ramp by asking the driver to activate the feature. A companion may ride free for persons using mobility aids and equipment. Riders must ensure that their equipment be safely secured aboard FST vehicles.

The City is currently in the process of implementing asphalt pads at bus stops for greater accessibility throughout the transit network.
