The jolliest bus in the TransLink fleet is back in service for the holidays.

The Reindeer Bus, the red-nosed people mover, hit the streets for another season of spreading cheer, getting folks to work and delivering toys to kids in need.

The Reindeer Bus is equipped with more than 2,000 responsive lighting, a flashing nose, an animated Christmas tree, holiday carols, and an inflatable Santa Claus to deliver season’s greetings.

It will service major Vancouver routes during peak hours.

The bus will also be used to deliver donated toys, collected from various TransLink offices throughout the region, as part of the Toys for Tots initiative.

“The Reindeer Bus is one of our proud traditions,” TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond said in release. “Whether it’s the volunteer decorators, the operators behind the wheel, the passengers in the seats, or the kids on Christmas Day – the Reindeer Bus brings us all together and brings a smile to every street corner.”

Last year, TransLink collected more than 3,000 toys and $1,240 in cash or gift cards for Toys for Tots.  Over the 33 years of the program, TransLink has donated more than 81,000 toys and nearly $48,000.

Toys for Tots donations can be made at the TransLink Customer Service Centre at Stadium-Chinatown Station.
