Brandon Transit To Provide FREE Rides on New Year's Eve

December 23, 2016


Thanks to continued support from community sponsors, Brandon Transit is, once again, offering New Year’s Eve revellers a safe, FREE ride as they ring in 2017 at New Year’s Eve festivities across Brandon on December 31st.  Once again supporting Brandon Transit’s efforts as the New Year’s Eve Transit program sponsor is Manitoba Public Insurance. Brandon Transit also thanks its local media partners 880 CKLQ/94.7 Star FM, 96.1 BOB FM/101.1 The Farm, and the Brandon Sun for their assistance in promoting this important public service to the community.

From 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31st (New Year’s Eve) to 3 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 1st (New Year’s Day), Brandon Transit will run its buses on a regular modified (hourly) service.  During those hours, it will be absolutely free to get on or off the bus at any of those route’s designated stops.

This is the 6th consecutive year Brandon Transit has offered its free New Year’s Eve Ride Program. Since the program started, more than 3,000 complimentary transit rides have been provided on New Year’s Eve.
