[…] the City will be installing – by this afternoon – late-night taxi zones along Victoria Avenue at Scarth Street. We are confident this will address the needs of patrons while also protecting the safety of pedestrians and motorists in the area.”
Wow. That was fast. When I raised the same problem with Service Regina several years ago, it was aaaages before the City agreed to the sensible taxi stop on the block with Victoria’s Tavern, despite the close proximity of an alleyway the City explained limited the space for such an important taxi stand.
At the end of June the City App died, and the host didn’t tell the City they were shutting off the service. The City, caught with its pants down, is trying to see if they can legally get the code for their app, so their developers can salvage the app. A new one is being developed with a new website also. They didn’t even make a PSA or news release noting the death of the once much hyped City App.
The CityApp was shut down on July 1, 2017. Our upcoming redesign of Regina.ca will include implementing a new mobile app to replace CityApp.

Yes, the City lists an example of being caught with its pants down, as an “achievement”.
