Winnipeg’s Santa Bus is now on the streets, spreading holiday cheer one ride at a time.
From now until Saturday, December 24, all cash fares and donations collected on the Santa Bus will go directly to the Christmas Cheer Board.
Last year, $15,000 was raised aboard Bus #140, which is decorated in vinyl graphics of Santa and all of his reindeer.
The Santa Bus will be servicing the following routes:
- 11 Kildonan – Portage (December 1 to 6)
- 16 Osborne – Selkirk (December 7 to 12)
- 19 Marion-Logan, Notre Dame (December 13 to 18)
- 18 North Main – Corydon (December 19 to 24)
To find the Santa Bus, text 287898 with the message “Bus 140.” BUStxt will text you back in a few seconds displaying which route the Santa Bus is on as well as the time it will be arriving at its next stop.
