‘Tis the Season for Winnipeg’s Santa Bus


The Santa Bus hits Winnipeg streets on Monday, December 1, bringing the holiday spirit to riders city-wide.

This year’s bus is #818 and will be decked out featuring larger-than-life images of Santa and his reindeer on the bus’s exterior. At the same time, the bus will be collecting cash donations for the Christmas Cheer Board. Last year, the campaign raised $13,000 for the cause.

Where to see the Santa Bus:

  • 11 Kildonan — Portage (December 1 to 6)
  • 16 Osborne — Selkirk (December 7 to 13)
  • 19 Marion-Logan, Notre Dame (December 14 to 20)
  • 18 North Main — Corydon (December 21 to 24

To find out where the bus is operating, text 287898 and enter Bus 818, then press send. BUStxt will text you back in just a few seconds displaying which route the Santa Bus is on plus the time it will be arriving at its next stop.

The Santa Bus will run until December 24.
