Regina Transit Centennial Celebration

If you’re a supporter of public transit, Regina Transit turns 100 this year. To celebrate there’s a gathering at City Hall Mall Thursday from 1-3 p.m. According to Regina Transit, the event commemorates the date (July 28, 1911) when four streetcars left City Hall (pictured), then located on 11th Ave. between Hamilton and Rose St., to begin transit service. This apparently makes Regina Transit the oldest public transit system in Saskatchewan.

There’ll be displays of transit memorabilia, including buses from past and present, and refreshments. So if you get a chance, check it out.
