City of Regina Warming Bus Service Ending at 7:45 a.m. Monday, December 5
The City of Regina’s temporary warming bus, first made available on November 11, 2022 and operating every night on 1600 block of 11th Avenue, will no longer be available after Monday, December 5 at 7:45 a.m.
The temporary warming bus service was provided as an urgent response to a critical shortage of overnight warming spaces as temperatures fell sharply in mid-November.
Recently, a local community-based organization received a federal government grant that will enable them to offer overnight warming shelter services for those in need from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. effective immediately. This organization is now best equipped to provide supports clients require in the immediate and longer term.
The City of Regina remains committed to continued collaboration with the community and other levels of government to address the needs of our most vulnerable.
As part of its Cold Weather Strategy, the City of Regina supports the Mobile Crisis Helpline. During periods of extreme cold, if someone is facing a life-threatening emergency, call 911. If you are in need of support or seeking shelter, call 306-757-0127 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or find them online at mobilecrisis.ca.
