A name has been proposed for Saskatoon’s new bus rapid transit (BRT) system.

City officials have proposed the name “Link” for the bus service, which will be part of Saskatoon Transit but have its own visual identity.

The city says a report seeking approval for the new brand will be presented to a council committee next week.
