Winnipeg Transit's Santa Bus

The Santa Bus is driving the holiday spirit starting Friday, December 1 until Saturday, December 24. All cash fares and donations collected on the Santa Bus go directly to the Christmas Cheer Board.

Bus #142 features larger-than-life vinyl graphics of Santa and all of his reindeer. “The Santa Bus raised $9,624.80 in 2016 and we’re ho-ho-hoping to collect even more this year,” said Mr. Claus. For more information about the Christmas Cheer Board visit
