Ride LaSalle Transit For Free Free During Strawberry Festival

Thursday June 6th, 2019, 10:00am


Hello time traveller!!

Transit service in LaSalle will be free and enhanced between June 6th and 9th during the annual Strawberry Festival.

Two buses will run during all festival hours with final pick-ups at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex taking place a few minutes after the festival closes. In addition, bus service has also been added on Sunday.

If riders use the increased transit service, the town hopes that it may mitigate some of the parking difficulties expected to occur at the Vollmer Complex throughout the weekend.

Soccer and ball diamond rentals will continue on the weekend, as well as rentals that were previously booked at the pavilion. Participants using the soccer fields, ball diamonds or rentals are welcome to use LaSalle Transit as well. Parking will be first come first serve all weekend. Patrons are reminded not to park in No Parking zones as they could be ticketed.

You can also ride your bicycles to the festival and take advantage of the free bike valet service hosted by Bike Friendly Windsor Essex. The valet service is located close to the entrance into the festival. Watch for the signs that will direct you to the valet service.

In addition, two shuttle buses will operate on Friday night to bring patrons to and from the festival for the fireworks. One bus will travel between Town Hall and the Vollmer Complex, and one between the old Centennial Arena site (on Front Road behind the Goodwill Donation Centre) and the Vollmer Complex. The shuttles will run between 7pm and 11:30pm.

Parking is first come first serve in both locations. A schedule for the shuttle service will be available soon. More information about LaSalle Transit, maps with Route 25 and bus stops can be found on their website at:
