Idea for BC Transit for next year's lighted truck parade:
Last night the BC Transit bus in the parade ran empty except for the driver. BCT could run some sort of draw during the preceding week, with the entry "fee" being a food donation and the prize being tickets for two to ride on the decorated bus, total maybe ten prizes so max. 20 people on the bus thus giving lots of space for all.
Meet the bus at the Ogden Point parade start, then ride in the parade; the only extra bit for the bus driver would be taking the winners back to Ogden Point after festivities wind up at Western Speedway.
