2011 Santa Bus Campaign Begins

December 5, 2011 – Thunder Bay Transit and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966 are teaming up to spread goodwill in our community with the 17th Annual Santa Bus Food Drive.

From Monday, December 5th until Friday, December 16th, our community is invited to drop off dry goods for the Thunder Bay Food Bank on any city bus at any time. To find out when a bus is coming to a stop near you, go to or call 684-3744.

The Santa Bus Food Drive, in aid of the Thunder Bay Food Bank, is an opportunity for Transit employees to join the public in helping others this holiday season.
The Thunder Bay Food Bank supplies emergency help to people in need and, when possible, assists other organizations with food.  The need is always greater in the winter, especially during the holidays.

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966 and Thunder Bay Transit have served the community of Thunder Bay with safe, reliable, economical and eco-friendly Transit service for 119 years.
