Winterfest

Cornwall Transit will be providing a free bus shuttle on Sunday, February 17th and Monday, February 18th as part of the Storm Realty Cornwall Winterfest Carnaval 2013.

The free shuttle will run on a 40-minute schedule and it will stop at 11 different locations in the City. The bus will stop to pick up passengers at any of the regular Cornwall Transit stops along the shuttle route.

On Sunday, February 17th, the final bus will depart from the Cornwall Civic Complex following the evening fireworks display. The shuttle will head east then west, dropping off passengers at the nearest bus stop.

“We’re pleased to partner with Winterfest and offer this free service,” said Transit Division Manager Len Tapp. “Cornwall Transit wants to make it easier for families to enjoy this great community event.”
