Free and Extended Bus and Ferry Service on New Year's Eve

This New Year's Eve, Halifax Transit is pleased to offer free and extended bus and ferry service in support of MADD Halifax Region.

On the evening of New Year's Eve (starting at 6 p.m.) all bus and ferry service will be free for the evening. In addition, many of Halifax Transit's bus routes and the Alderney ferry will extend their service later into the evening to ensure that our passengers have a safe trip home after ringing in the new year.

This free and extended service is offered to support MADD Halifax in their mission to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime. Donations to MADD Halifax are used to support MADD Halifax programming areas including educating schools on the perils of impaired driving and hosting candlelight vigils for victims. We encourage you to contribute to MADD Halifax online today or directly to a MADD Halifax volunteer at the Halifax/Dartmouth Ferry Terminals on New Year's Eve.
