Winnipeg Transit will once again partner with Manitoba Public Insurance to offer FREE bus rides on New Years Eve.

Let Winnipeg Transit be your designated driver… The Free Ride program applies to all Regular and Handi-Transit service starting at 7:00 p.m. until end of service. The last buses leave downtown at approximately 1:38 a.m.

“The Free Ride program is an easy and convenient way for Winnipeggers to get home on New Year’s Eve while keeping our streets safe from alcohol-related tragedies,” said Councillor Marty Morantz, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works. “With the support of Manitoba Public Insurance, Winnipeg Transit is helping citizens to make the right choice not to drink and drive.”

Last year, more than 15,000 people rode the bus for free on New Year’s Eve in Winnipeg.
