Golden Gate Transit Holiday Bus 2016

Experience the Joy of Giving - Bridge District Partners with Toys for Tots for “Stuff the Bus” Toy Collection Events

The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District has partnered with Toys for Tots this holiday season and invites customers and locals to Experience the Joy of Giving by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to one of many “stuff the bus” events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

The “holiday bus” – complete with snowflakes, twinkling stars, children’s toys, and a Golden Gate Bridge “snow globe” – will quickly get eventgoers in the holiday spirit. The holiday bus will also be assigned to various bus routes beginning in mid November and will continue in service through January 2017.

We will continue to add to this list of “stuff the bus” events so please check back regularly!

Toys and gifts may be dropped off at “stuff the bus” events only and may not be donated while the bus is in service (bus drivers do not have a place to store toys). The Toys for Tots program works with social welfare agencies, churches, and other local agencies to identify needy children in the community and distribute the donations.

If you cannot make one of the above events, please refer to this list of Toys for Tots drop off locations for Sonoma County.

Happy Holidays from the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District!
