Forget Plan B, make Nightrider bus your only New Year's plan

THE local Liquor Accord and Coffs Harbour City Council are funding FREE Nightrider bus services this New Year's Eve.

These services will run between midnight and 3.30am.

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," Council's Road Safety and Transport Officer Anne Shearer said.

"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."

THE TIMETABLE:

  • 12.05am, 2.05am & 3.35am from the CBD (outside the Empire Kebab shop on Grafton Street/Highway), Jetty strip and Ocean Parade (Hoey Moey bus zone) to the Northern Beaches and Woolgoolga;
  • There will be services every hour from 12.15am to 3.15am to Sawtell, Toormina and Boambee departing from the CBD (outside the Empire Kebab shop on Grafton Street/Highway), Ocean Parade (Hoey Moey bus zone) and Jetty strip.
