Post secondary students in the city have an easier commute this school year.
Back in January, Fort Saskatchewan made a move to become part of the U-Pass program.
"If you go to the schools Grant MacEwan, University of Alberta, Norquest or NAIT, you basically pay through your tuition to get free transit, and then you can use your student card with the U-Pass sticker to access transit," said Anthony Dionigi, transit supervisor with the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
Since the implementation of the U-Pass, the city has seen students especially taking advantage of the Edmonton 580 Commuter bus to the Clareview station.
"The U-Pass was accounting for, in some months, 25 per cent of the ridership," Dionigi added.
The new service means that getting to school is more accessible for many of the students and can minimizes parking costs and difficulties.
