Zehrs Sponsoring Free Shuttle Rides To Ford Fireworks

For the 10th straight year, local Zehrs stores are sponsoring shuttle rides to the Ford Fireworks.

Store officials along with city staff announced the partnership at the Zehrs store on Tecumseh Rd. E. at Lauzon on Thursday morning.

The free rides will be provided by Transit Windsor.

Executive Director Pat Delmore says it's a busy night for transit.

"Constantly we provide around 10,000 rides for every fireworks evening so it's a huge number of people we are moving to and from the event," says Delmore.

Delmore adds local and out of town residents take advantage of the service.

"We hear people boarding all the time talking about being from Chatham and from London and even people from the U-S that are driving over and parking at Devonshire Mall and taking our service downtown to get the better view," says Delmore.     

This year's Ford Fireworks take place on June 25th.

The shuttles will leave from Devonshire Mall starting at 6pm and will head back to the mall after the show.

Delmore adds every transit bus route will also be free at 6pm.
