You can take a tour of the best Christmas light displays in Metro Vancouver on a classic bus

You'll be on Rudolph, the red-nosed New Flyer D40LF

Want to visit some of the best Christmas light displays in Metro Vancouver but don't want to worry about driving or route planning?

The Transit Museum Society (TraMS) has organized a unique way to see Christmas decor with two tours around the city on one of their museum pieces, also known as a bus. Specifically, it's a 1996 New Flyer D40LF that saw service in both Vancouver and Victoria; the bus was acquired by TraMS earlier this year.

And it'll be dressed up as the most famous reindeer of all (if you recall it's Rudolph, the crimsoned-nosed caribou).

The magical journeys through Metro Vancouver all lit up will take place on Dec. 10 and 17 as the bus meanders through the city's communities for three-and-a-half hours (with a break).

Tickets are $35 for adults; money raised through the tours will go to funding the society, which cares for a number of vintage busses and transit equipment from the Lower Mainland.
