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.
