Victoria’s Santa bus is coming to town

Santa and Mrs. Claus take to transit Dec. 15 and 16 in Greater Victoria

Every year Santa gives his reindeer a couple of days off and takes the bus throughout Greater Victoria.

Hop on board and join Santa and his elf, who take time off their duties in the North Pole to visit Victoria and treat transit riders to candy canes, stickers and festive music.

On Friday, Dec. 15, these special North Pole guests and their red-nosed BC Transit ride visit downtown Victoria, James Bay, Oak Bay, Hillside/Lansdowne, UVic, Gordon Head and Royal Oak.

On Saturday, look for the Santa bus as it travels several times between downtown Victoria, Mayfair Shopping Centre and Uptown Mall.
