Once again, the District of Kitimat, Rio Tinto Alcan, Eurocan and Methanex are helping create a safe New Years Eve in Kitimat. To that extent, they are providing busing through out the day and into the morning. The busing is sponsored by Rio Tinto Alcan, Eurocan and Methanex.
“It’s 24 hour bus service on New Year's Eve and free service is from 7 pm to 5 am. That’s when people can ride free. It’s half hour service on all regular bus routes. We have a special party loop that runs from midnight to 4:00 am that serves the parties at the Luso and the Legion,” said Municipal Clerk Walter McLellan.
849 people took advantage of the service last year. The records for the busing go back to 1981, when there were 224 passengers. Take advantage of the busing and have a safe New Years Eve.
