Boy howdy, there’s a whole bunch of holiday parades coming up this weekend. And as you’ve probably guessed, the holiday spirit will mean some bus reroutes in the region, along with a lot of good cheer!
(It also looks like Santa’s got a very busy schedule this weekend :)

As always, SkyTrain will provide extra trains for the Rogers Santa Claus parade in Vancouver (an easy, traffic-free way to get there and back!).
The parade starts at 1 p.m., and to get there, exit SkyTrain at either Burrard or Granville Station (both have elevators for wheelchairs and strollers), and walk to Georgia Street.
By the way, remember our group ride offer applies on Sundays and holidays! The specifics: if you have an adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass, you can take five children, or one adult and four children on transit with you for free.
