All aboard the Jingle Bell Express!
Saskatoon Transit is encouraging shoppers to take the Jingle Bell Express during the holiday shopping season. The Jingle Bell Express, which began as a pilot last year, provides customers with easy access to Saskatoon malls without having to worry about holiday traffic or full parking lots.
“The Jingle Bell Express removes the hassle of driving and parking, but also provides users with access to malls they may not otherwise have the opportunity to visit,” says Jim MacDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit. “Regular fares apply and the service is available from Saturday, December 8th until Sunday, December 23rd and it will be free on Boxing Day.”
The Jingle Bell Express is a special route put into place as we lead up to the holidays. It’s called Route 1225 and runs between:
- Midtown Plaza
- Confederation Mall
- Lawson Heights
- Centre Mall
- Market Mall
Weekday service will be available from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and weekend service will run from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. On Boxing Day, the Jingle Bell Express will be free and will operate between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Use the Transit App or Google Transit to plan your trip or consult the Transit website.
Jingle Bell Express riders will be asked to complete a survey for a chance to win one of five $100 gift cards provided by each participating mall.
