If you’re planning on drinking on New Year’s Eve but are worried about the lack of ride-hailing in Metro Vancouver, TransLink is offering free rides on SkyTrain, Canada Line, buses, SeaBus and the West Coast Express.
The free rides will begin at 5 p.m. on Dec. 31 and end at 5 a.m. on Jan. 1.
Did you know we offer FREE transit after 5pm on New Years Eve? Stay safe, and leave the car at home. SkyTrain will run about an hour later as well. Happy New Years to YOU! https://t.co/DdJLdXGkiU ^LA pic.twitter.com/I1uahzTsgK
