The concept of First Saturdays is one that relies on many different Kimberley organizations coming together to contribute to these first-Saturday-of-the-month celebrations.
And Emily Smith of the First Saturdays committee is thrilled to announce that Kimberley Community Transit has stepped forward to offer a shuttle service between Kimberley’s Townsite and Marysville on First Saturdays, June through October.
The cost is only $3 a ride, Smith says and kids five and under are free.
The bus will run on the following schedule/stops each month approximately every 45 minutes.
Townsite Grocery to Garden View Corner to Shoppers Drug Mart to Lions Manor to Bowling Alley to Kimbrook Manor to Valley View Residence – Marysville and then to the Marysville Arena. The June First Saturday is anchored by the Mark Creek Lions Marysville Daze at the arena.
Between at 9am and 11:45am and again between 2pm and 4:15pm, with last trip leaving at Howard/Deer Park Avenue 4:15pm.
Valley View Residence – Marysville to Marysville Petro-Can to Kimbrook Manor to Bowling Alley to Lions Manor to Townsite Grocery to Garden View Corner to Howard/Deer Park Avenue.
A service will run between 11:30am and 4:15pm beginning at the Valley View Residence-Marysville with the same route as July and the final bus leaving Howard/Deer Park Avenue at 4:15pm
“While this service will primarily service First Saturday events, anyone is welcome to use the bus to get around town,” Smith said. “Kimberley Community Transit’s support of First Saturday, Marysville Daze and other community summer events is much appreciated.”
