Pocatello Regional Transit’s most festive bus rides of the season are returning.
Tickets for PRT’s annual Tour of Lights go on sale at 8 a.m. Monday for this year’s tour, which will take place Dec. 12 and 13. During the Tour of Lights, PRT’s buses will be taking a drive around Pocatello and Chubbuck to highlight the two cities’ premier holiday decoration displays. Because of the tour’s growing popularity, PRT is adding an additional bus this year for tour-goers.
“The spirit of the holidays radiates throughout the buses as participants mingle and sing carols,” said Skyler Beebe, Pocatello Regional Transit director. “2019 marks our 32nd year offering the event, and over the years, riders young and old have returned annually to make the tour a part of their holiday traditions.”
Tickets are $5 per person and free for toddlers who are able to sit on a parent’s or guardian’s lap. Tickets can be purchased at PRT’s Transit Center, 5815 S. Fifth Ave., starting Monday and must be purchased at least one day prior to the desired tour day. Seating is limited for the tour, which has sold out during previous years. On each night of the tour, boarding begins at 7 p.m. with buses departing from Pocatello City Hall promptly at 7:30 p.m. and returning around 9 p.m.
The tour can accommodate groups by special arrangement, which may be made by contacting Pocatello Regional Transit at 208-234-ABUS (2287) or via email at email@example.com.
