For anyone wanting to avoid what can be a stressful traffic experience, Saskatoon Transit encourages shoppers to hop on Route 1225the Jingle Bell Express.  

The Jingle Bell Express is Saskatoon Transit’s annual holiday shopping bus route. It runs from December 7th to the 23rd and again with free service on Boxing Day. This route stops at Midtown, Centre, Market, Confederation, and Lawson Heights malls every half hour, providing riders with great shopping experience and none of the driving or parking fuss! 

“The Jingle Bell Express removes the hassle of driving and parking, while providing riders with access to malls they may not otherwise visit,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit. “Regular fares apply except on Boxing Day when the Jingle Bell Express will be free.” 

The Jingle Bell Express will be available weekdays from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and weekends from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. On Boxing Day the Jingle Bell Express will operate as a free service between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  

Everyone is encouraged to use the Transit App or Google Transit to plan their trip, or consult the route schedule on Transit’s website. 

Jingle Bell Express riders may be asked to complete a short survey for a chance to win one of five $100 gift cards sponsored by the participating malls.
