WINNIPEG — Free rides from Winnipeg Transit will get New Year’s revellers to and from their celebrations safely Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning.
Winnipeg Transit is offering the service beginning at 7 p.m. December 31 until end of service on January 1. The last buses will leave downtown at approximately 1:35 a.m.
“We want to remind everyone to make good decisions this holiday season. Find a safe way home,” said Winnipeg police Staff Sargent Sean Pollock.
The free ride program is sponsored by Manitoba Public Insurance.
Last year, more than 15,000 revellers used Winnipeg Transit’s free ride program as part of their plan to get home safely on New Year’s Eve.
