Santa bus drives holiday cheer this weekend

Mr. Claus riding various routes through Greater Victoria and the West Shore

This Friday and Saturday (Dec. 19 and 20), BC Transit has invited the one and only Santa Claus to ride the bus, wishing everyone happy holidays and ho-ho-ho-ing his way around town.

Mr. C. will be handing out candy canes and stickers to the kids (and grown-ups, if you ask nicely) to the tune of holiday music and carols. Feel free to sing along if the mood strikes.

Santa will be hopping between routes from 7 a.m. to 2:40 p.m.
