FREE Shuttle to Elk Island Coming Soon!


With gas prices the way they are, we can’t even afford to travel to Saint Albert at this rate. So this is pretty exciting.


 A free shuttle will soon be available for people looking to head out to Elk Island for the day!

It’ll start on July 28 and run every Saturday until Sept. 15.

The bus will leave from Mountain Equipment Co-op downtown at 8:30 am and come back to the city around 3:30 PM.

This is awesome! You could even pack a boozy sangria picnic with your girls and none of you have to worry about driving!

Check out all the info on the  Parkbus website.
