Free Bus Service New Year's Eve

There will be no charge to take the bus after 8:30 pm on New Year's Eve and during the early hours of New Year's Day, thanks to the Regional District of Nanaimo and BC Transit. In order to provide a safe, convenient travel option for the community, BC Transit and the RDN will offer free, modified service on RDN Transit routes from 8:30 pm on Dec. 31 to 2:30 am on Jan. 1.

"I would like to thank BC Transit for its commitment to riders and its generous support of our New Year's Eve Transit Service," said RDN Chair Joe Stanhope. "Taking public transit is a convenient way for residents to travel to and from New Year's Eve celebrations without having to worry about how to get home safely."

RDN Transit is also partnering with Woodgrove Centre on New Year's Day to provide Sunday service levels throughout the Region.
