Since 1995, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest provides a safe and convenient transportation alternative through our Take The Bus on Us free bus ride campaign, courtesy of the Molson "Here's to Responsible Choices" Program, Grand River Transit and the Festhallen.
Schedule information is also in our publications and is posted in area hotels and at the Festhallen.
The Pepsi Designated Driver Program is available at many of our Festhallen. After registering at the Festhallen, the Designated Driver can enjoy free Pepsi while in the hall, plus they are eligible to win great prizes in a draw at the close of the Festival.
As part of our commitment to ensure that Festival patrons get home safely, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest supports the Waterloo Regional Police and OPP RIDE program. An estimated 8,000 drivers will be screened through this initiative, and on successfully passing the process, will receive a booklet jam-packed with gifts and discount coupons provided by our many sponsors.
