Zehrs and Transit Windsor Add Stuff-a-Bus Campaign to Free Fireworks Night

Transit Windsor is once again ready to roll out the free buses on fireworks night thanks to Zehrs, but there is a bonus for our community in need this year, as the two organizations are also teaming up for a series of stuff-a-bus campaigns.

The Ford Fireworks on the Detroit River takes place Monday June 24, 2024, and Transit Windsor will provide free direct service from Devonshire Mall to a drop-off spot near City Hall as well as free regular bus service across the community.

New this year, a stuff-a-bus campaign begins Saturday, June 15, 2024, at the St. Clair Beach Zehrs (400 Manning Road).

A Transit Windsor bus will be on site from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. accepting non-perishable food donations as well as clothing and cash donations.

The bus will roll on to the Parkway Plaza Zehrs (7201 Tecumseh Road East) on Saturday, June 22, 2024, and then to LaSalle Zehrs (5890 Malden Road) on Saturday, June 29, 2024, again from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

“Our friends at Zehrs have been helping make fireworks night extra special for 14 years now. This night means so much to so many families, and it’s one of those magical experiences that truly highlights the benefits of the unique two-nation destination that exists between Windsor and Detroit.”

Ward 7 Councillor Angelo Marignani

Free Transit Fireworks Night:
Parkway Zehrs on Tecumseh Road East, St. Clair Beach Zehrs and Zehrs in LaSalle are coming together to cover the costs of free bus rides across Windsor on Monday, June 24, 2024, from 6 p.m. to 12 midnight.

Take the Shuttle Fireworks Night:
Avoid the annual parking issues and road closures by enjoying the free ride from Devonshire Mall to the Windsor riverfront and back. Shuttles leave Devonshire Mall (3100 Howard Avenue) starting at 6 p.m. from Sydney Avenue, and the last shuttle will return to the mall from a pickup location across from the Windsor Arena on McDougall Street near Wyandotte Street West directly after the fireworks until midnight.

Further details on downtown road closures and parking will be available closer to event night.
