Santa bus is coming to town! (YouTube/BC Transit)

Santa Bus returns to Victoria

The festive bus tours the capital region on Dec. 13 and 14

A very special, holiday-themed bus is about to hit the streets and spread Christmas cheer.

On Dec. 13 and 14 BC Transit’s Santa Bus comes to town for the 33rd year in a row.

The red-nosed and antlered vehicle will cruise through the Capital Region with a special crew on board: Santa Claus and a team of elves to help hand out holiday treats to passengers.

The interior of the bus will be gilded with bobbles and wreaths while a selection of favourite Christmas tunes play over the speakers.

Also on Dec. 14 at the Save-On-Foods at the Tillicum Centre, BC Transit and the Victoria Regional Transit Commission will be hosting its annual Stuff the Bus campaign. People are welcome to bring in cash, non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys and clothing to 3170 Tillicum Rd. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
