The Ghost Bus is back for its sixth year, bringing free Halloween fun to the City’s three main community centres next week. Once again, a Barrie Transit bus has been transformed into a spooky place for families to explore this Halloween season. 
“The Ghost Bus Tour has grown into one of our most popular annual events. It’s a great way for families to get in the Halloween spirit,” said Alex Malmsten, Recreation Supervisor at the City. “Transit and Recreation staff try to raise the bar each year and introduce new spooky elements to keep the thrill alive.”
Approximately 8,000 people attended the Ghost Bus Tour last year. Here are the dates and locations of this year’s tour:
• Tuesday, October 22 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at East Bayfield Community Centre, 80 Livingstone St. E
• Wednesday, October 23 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Allandale Recreation Centre, 190 Bayview Drive
• Thursday, October 24 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Holly Community Centre, 171 Mapleton Ave.
In addition to the Ghost Bus, a variety of Halloween-themed activities will be offered for kids of all ages. The bus will remain stationary all night so participants are invited to drop in anytime during the free event. Costumes are encouraged.  
Parents are reminded to use their discretion when deciding whether or not to enter the Ghost Bus with their children. The bus is on the softer side of a typical haunted house, but may be too spooky for some participants.
