A 40-foot transit bus has been wrapped in pink and will roll through the streets picking up fares, raising awareness and showing off ribbons of support for the next 12 months.

The International Dragon Boat campaign will receive the money raised through the purchase of “individual” or “corporate” ribbons that will be fastened on the side of the bus.

“Cancer is sadly something that touches many, many families,” says Mayor Drew Dilkens.

“We have smaller ribbons which people can buy for a loved one who is, or has had to face cancer,” said Transit Windsor General Manager Penny Williams, a cancer survivor herself. “The loved one’s name will go on the ribbon and be put on the bus for the duration of the campaign. The other larger ribbon is for businesses to put their logo on as a show of support for the breast cancer cause as well.”
