Free Rides Home from Winnipeg Transit on New Year’s

New Year’s Eve revellers will have a safe ride home next week thanks to free rides from Winnipeg Transit.

The city and Manitoba Public Insurance have partnered again to offer the Ride Free, Ride Safe program. Beginning at 9 p.m., regular and Handi-Transit  service will be free, with the last bus leaving downtown at 1:38 a.m. FYI, most bars close at 2 a.m., so there’s always Operation Red Nose.

Last year, more than 12,000 people rode the bus for free on New Year’s Eve in Winnipeg. For complete bus route and schedule information, visit or call 311.
