Head Start Kids Visit With Santa on WRTA’s Holiday Bus

The 2018 WRTA Holiday Bus was officially launched recently at an event at the Boardman Branch of the Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County, and children from Alta Head Start’s Lockwood and Market Street Elementary Learning Centers were the special guests.

More than 50 Alta kids waited their turn while coloring holiday-themed pictures in the library’s meeting room. Then, they got to climb on board the festively decorated bus and visit with Santa Claus, whose “throne” was the back seat. There were lots of wide eyes and excited smiles as they received treats from St. Nick.

Alta Head Start thanks WRTA for inviting our children to this special event, and the Library for hosting it and providing some of the treats.

You can look for WRTA’s Holiday Bus now through Christmas Eve Day. It will make at least one trip on every WRTA Fixed Route before making its final appearance at the First Night celebration in downtown Youngstown on New Year’s Eve.
