It’s almost time for 2010’s grand finale, and to add to the excitement Translink is including free transit for everyone looking to get to their next New Year’s event.
On December 31st after 5pm all Translink services will be free of charge for New Year’s Eve party-goers. Buses, Skytrain, West Coast Express, and SeaBus will be free for riders. Holiday schedule details are available here.
The service will be free into the early morning of January 1st. This will help everyone get home in a safe and quick manner. The Buzz predicts this decision has been made to help curb drinking and driving and also as a response to the strict BC drinking and driving laws that came into effect this year. Note that some services will be running as late as 4am, including night buses.
Happy New Year!
