The 2021 Jingle Bell Express is Saskatoon Transit’s 5th annual holiday shopping bus route. It runs from December 6-23, and then again with free service on Boxing Day (December 26). This route stops at Midtown, Centre, Market, Confederation, and Lawson Heights malls providing riders with a great shopping experience! 

“The Jingle Bell Express removes the hassle of driving, 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 is 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. This holiday bus route is decorated and plays Christmas music to get you in the holiday spirit.    

Masks are required on all transit buses.  Use the Transit App or Google Maps Transit to plan a trip, or consult the route schedule on Transit’s website. 

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