The City of Brandon is excited to announce that a free, safe bus ride to and from your New Year’s Eve party awaits you, thanks to the efforts of Brandon Transit and its generous community sponsors!
From 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 31st (New Year’s Eve) to 3 a.m. on Sunday, January 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 ride Brandon Transit and Brandon Access Transit.
“Brandon Transit is excited to be able to offer this free service once again to those in our community whose festivities take them out and about on New Year’s Eve,” said Courtney Arndt, Manager of Transit with the City of Brandon. “We are pleased to partner with local businesses to provide this service to the residents of Brandon.”
As many celebrations are on the go, Brandon Transit makes it easy to plan your ride right from your mobile device with the Google Transit Web Service! To plan your NYE travel route or for more information on Brandon Transit’s routes and schedules, visit brandontransit.ca.
Once again supporting Brandon Transit’s efforts as the New Year’s Eve Transit program sponsor is Manitoba Public Insurance. Manitoba Public Insurance is committed to reducing alcohol-related collisions, deaths, and injuries, and providing the New Year’s Eve transit service in Brandon makes perfect sense.
Brandon Transit also thanks its local media partners Bounce Radio, Pure Country 101, and the Brandon Sun for their assistance in promoting this important public service to the community.
