The University of Regina has partnered with the City of Regina’s Transit Department to provide safe, reliable, affordable and complimentary public transportation during Congress 2018. This service will be provided free to registered Congress attendees simply by showing your Congress badge when boarding the bus.

The main transit hub on the University of Regina campus is located outside the Riddell Centre (consult the Congress 2018 map for locations). Several bus routes service the campus, including #3, 4, 18, 21, 22 and 30. If required, bus tickets can be purchased on campus at the University of Regina Students’ Union, located on the second floor of the Riddell Centre, or any Regina Transit tickets agent. Exact change of $3.25 is also accepted; however, bus operators cannot make change and fare boxes do not accept paper money. 

More information on schedules is available on their website, as well as links to real-time route information at and Google Maps transit directions for trip planning.
