Brandon Transit Providing FREE rides on New Year’s Eve


Brandon Transit is, once again, pleased to provide New Year’s Eve revellers a safe, FREE ride as they ring in the New Year at festivities across Brandon on December 31st.

From 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31st (New Year’s Eve) to 3 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 1st (New Year’s Day), Brandon Transit will run its buses on a regular modified (hourly) service. During those hours, it will be free to get on or off the bus at any regular route’s designated stops. Please note that following the end of this free service at 3 a.m., regular Brandon Transit Service is not offered on New Year’s Day.

This is the ninth consecutive year Brandon Transit has offered its free New Year’s Eve Ride Program in the community, a service which wouldn’t be possible without program sponsor, Manitoba Public Insurance. Brandon Transit also thanks this year’s local media partners, 96.1 BOB FM/Pure Country 101.1 and the Brandon Sun, for their extra assistance in promoting this important public service to the community.
