22 December 2015 Get on board the New Year’s Eve Nightrider

The local Liquor Accord and Council have funded FREE Nightrider bus services on New Year’s Eve. These services will run between midnight and 3.15am. The northern service will take revellers home to the Northern Beaches and Woolgoolga. The Southern service will drop off to Boambee East, Toormina and Sawtell.

 

“We’re urging everyone to make sure they have a Plan B to get home. People can take a Nightrider bus, a taxi, get a lift with a friend who hasn’t been drinking or taking drugs, arrange to stay overnight with a friend or relative, or take a courtesy bus from a venue,”

says Anne Shearer, Council’s Road Safety and Transport Officer.

 

“You may think driving home is the cheapest option – but the consequences of a drink drive offence can be very costly. You could lose your licence, cop a fine, lose your job, lose the respect of your family, friends and colleagues, end up in jail or even lose your life,” she said.

 

The timetable:

 

·         12.05am, 2.05am & 3.05am from the CBD (outside the TAB, Grafton Street/Highway), Jetty strip and Ocean Parade (Hoey Moey bus zone) to the Northern Beaches and Woolgoolga;

·         Also there will be services every hour from 12.15am to 3.15am to Sawtell, Toormina and Boambee also departing from the CBD (outside the TAB on Grafton Street/Highway), Ocean Parade (Hoey Moey bus zone) and Jetty strip.
