Cornwall Transit Provides Free Rides for Santa Claus Parade

Posted On Monday November 23, 2020

Cornwall Transit buses will offer free transportation during the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, November 28.

Starting at 3 p.m., rides on all Transit routes will be free.

Residents wishing to tour the Santa Claus Parade on a Transit bus should wait in the Civic Complex parking lot just South of Sydney Street (see map).

Buses will collect 12 to 15 passengers at a time, who must:

  • Wear a mask, unless they meet Eastern Ontario Health Unit exemptions,
  • Sanitize their hands when they board the bus, and
  • Keep their distance from anyone outside their household.

“Cornwall Transit is proud to offer this service free of charge,” said Len Tapp, Transit Division Manager. “The drive-by Santa Claus Parade is sure to be a success this year, and our buses will ensure residents without their own vehicle will be able to enjoy the spirit of the season, too.”

The drive-by parade, organized by the Optimist Club of Cornwall, takes place in the Civic Complex parking lot from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on November 28. Older children and adults are encouraged to come after 7 p.m.

Entrance to the event will be via the western entrance of the Civic Complex, off Water Street.

Keep an eye out for City of Cornwall staff in the parade:

  • Cornwall Fire Services staff will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for Sparky’s Toy Drive, and
  • Municipal Works trucks will be on display.
