Winnipeg Transit is waiving the fare for New Year’s Eve revellers once again this year.
Riders can hop Transit for free beginning at 7 p.m. on December 31 until the end of service. The last buses leave downtown at approximately 1:35 a.m. on January 1.
“By all means, please go out and enjoy yourself on New Year’s Eve, but make a plan before you go out to get home safe,” said Winnipeg Police Staff Sergeant Rob Riffel. “The New Year’s Eve Free Ride program is a great alternative to ensure your night ends on a happy note.”
Last year, more than 15,000 riders took Winnipeg Transit on New Year’s Eve.
Operation Red Nose will also be operating.
