Transit Windsor will again offer free bus service and a free direct shuttle bus option on fireworks night, thanks to a partnership with Zehrs.

“This is a family affair that has been sorely missed,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Fireworks night has always been a chance to gather and enjoy our beautiful riverfront with those close to you while watching a one-of-a-kind fireworks show. Thanks to Transit Windsor and our friends at Zehrs, getting there is once again free and easy.”

Transit Windsor will provide free direct service from Devonshire Mall to a drop-off spot near City Hall, as well as free regular bus service across the community.

Federal regulations require Transit Windsor to ensure all riders must wear a mask while on the bus.

“We hope people see wearing the mask for a few minutes as either a good extra safety precaution or even just a small inconvenience compared to the overall experience being delivered,” said Transit Windsor Executive Director Tyson Cragg. “We’ll have masks on hand for those who forget, but we encourage everyone to bring their own.”

In past years, upwards of five thousand area residents have utilized the free regular transit route service on fireworks night, and between five and seven thousand have parked at Devonshire Mall to ride the free shuttles from that location.

“We’re proud to support the free transit rides for fireworks night; this will be our 12th year, and we hope to see record attendance,” said Zehrs Manager Attila Kadar.
Free Rides All Night:

Shuttles leave Devonshire Mall, starting at 6pm, from Sydney Avenue. The last shuttle will return to the mall from McDougall Avenue, beside Windsor Arena, immediately following the Fireworks and until midnight.

This year’s fireworks begin at 10pm on Monday, June 27th, 2022.
