Main streets are clear but Regina residents are still digging out from side streets after more than a foot-and-a-half of snow blanketed south Saskatchewan.
School buses were cancelled for the third day in a row Wednesday for Regina Public students because side streets still posed a risk of having buses get stuck.
Here we go again. Conditions in #yqr's side streets have not improved enough to allow safe passage of buses. All student transportation for Regina Public Schools is CANCELLED FOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7th. #yqrtraffic. Thank you for your understanding.

Outside the city, most school buses were running Wednesday for Prairie Valley School Division with just a few individual bus drivers cancelling routes.
Prairie South School Division reported all school buses were cancelled for the City of Moose Jaw again for Wednesday, but there were no reports of rural cancellations.
The Southeast Cornerstone School Division’s website listed all buses running.
High school special buses run by Regina Transit were also all cancelled for Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Regina Transit buses were using social media to report detours and delays due to the snow.
Changes to the transit schedule are reported on the website and on Twitter through @YQRTransit.
With so many vehicles getting stuck on side streets, people are coming together to help each other in the aftermath of the snowstorm. People are sharing stories of neighbours getting together to clear their streets and school classes going out to help shovel driveways and sidewalks for people.
While frustration is running high about some issues with snow clearing, many are thanking their ‘snow angels’ for helping to clear sidewalks or push out vehicles that are getting stuck
