Free transit on Princess St. Promenade day
July 27, 2015 -
Come on and take a free ride on Kingston Transit to get to the Princess St. Promenade street festival – or anywhere else – on Saturday, Aug. 1.
"The Promenade street festival is a celebration of community and active transportation. Enhancing the vibrancy of our downtown is part of our plan to be a smart and liveable 21st century city, so to show our support the City is offering free Kingston Transit for both Promenade dates, Aug. 1 and Sept. 19," says Mayor Bryan Paterson.
Princess Street will be closed to motorized traffic between Barrie and Ontario Streets during the Promenade from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
This DowntownKingston! event is designed to make Princess Street a pedestrian-friendly, motor-free zone for the day to celebrate our lovely and lively downtown and promote the use of active transportation (walking, cycling, or riding public transit) to get there.
Retailers, restaurants and other Promenade participants offer activities throughout this day-long event.
