GET to debut its holiday bus at Bakersfield Christmas Parade
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The Christmas season is upon us and with it comes the Golden Empire Transit District’s Christmas Bus.
The bus is painted by GET employee’s children and provides free rides through December.
The free service begins Friday, after the bus debuts at the Bakersfield Christmas Parade on Thursday in downtown Bakersfield. GET employees and their children will ride the bus in the parade.
The theme of this year’s Christmas Bus is “The Incredibles.”
The bus will serve different routes throughout the city and everyone who boards it rides for free.
“We’re trying to introduce more people to transit, and that’s a fun way to do it,” Karen King, CEO of GET, said.
