The Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) has announced the return of their popular Senior Seat Sale. From September 1 to 30, 2014, seniors aged 60 and over can ride anywhere STC goes for just $15 one-way.
"We want seniors in Saskatchewan to view bus travel as a comfortable and convenient transportation alternative," Minister responsible for STC Jennifer Campeau said. "STC's Senior Seat Sale gives seniors an affordable and green way to visit family and friends across Saskatchewan."
Every passenger on an STC bus potentially means one less vehicle on the road - making the province both safer and greener. Bus travel is not only the greener alternative, it is also an affordable alternative. The standard senior fare for a one-way trip between Regina and Saskatoon is $36.55 with tax. If a senior purchases the same one-way ticket in September, he or she can save more than $20 dollars.
"This is the sixth year that STC has offered our Senior Seat Sale," STC President and CEO Shawn Grice said. "We're always impressed with the number of senior riders that come out and take advantage of the savings during sale months."
Seniors can find out more about the sale on STC's website at www.stcbus.com/seniorsale or on STC's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/STCbus. Sale tickets can be purchased at any STC agency and seniors are reminded to bring their identification with them at the time of purchase and travel.
