Translink Dec. 31: How to get home on New Year’s


It’s New Year’s Eve: day of revelry, resolutions and staying out late. Just make sure you get home safe. With free transport from Translink after 5:00pm as well as extra services, this shouldn’t be too hard.

The December 31, Translink schedule follows. And bring your brolly. They’re predicting rain mixed with snow overnight.
