Few things in life are free, but on New Year’s Eve, you can count on a free ride safely home from Winnipeg Transit.

The free ride program to all regular and Handi-Transit service will begin 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

“Winnipeggers are reminded that impaired driving is not exclusive to over-use of alcohol. Impairment by drugs also impacts concentration, reaction time and driving ability,” said Satvir Jatana, vice-president responsible for communications, Manitoba Public Insurance.

“Taking the New Year’s Eve Free Ride guarantees everyone gets home safely. We all want 2019 to start on a safe and happy note. Our goal is to make 2019 the safest year on our roads.”

Last year, more than 15,000 revellers used Winnipeg Transit’s free ride program on New Year’s Eve.
