Santa Claus Parade affects bus service for KGH visitors, staff

The annual Santa Claus Parade takes to Kingston’s downtown core on Saturday, November 18 between 4:30 and 7 p.m.  Changes to Kingston Transit service during that time will have an impact on visitors and staff at our Kingston General Hospital site.  Please take note of temporary adjustments to the following bus routes:

  • Routes 1 and 2 will not cross Princess St. during the parade.  Routes 1 and 2 travelling from KGH will turn back downtown and will not continue north of Princess; Routes 1 and 2 travelling from the north end will turn back before reaching downtown and will not service KGH.

  • Express Route 601/602 will not service KGH during parade hours.

  • Express Routes 501 and 502 will not service stops on Princess between the downtown transfer point and Sir John A. Macdonald (these buses will continue to service KGH in both directions and will run every 15 minutes from 3-8 p.m.).
