NightRider back on Coffs roads

COFFS Harbour’s popular NightRider bus service will run again this year during the 2010 Coffs Cup in August and also over the Christmas and New Year period.

Coffs Harbour City Council has received additional funding of $50,000 from the Department of Justice and Attorney General NSW to continue the service.

As in previous years, the service will extend north to Woolgoolga via the northern beach villages as well as covering Toormina, Sawtell and eastern and western Coffs Harbour.

Police have also supported the call for the service to return, given it has played a part in reducing the incidence and prevalence of drink-driving, drunken pedestrians and alcohol-related offences in the early hours of the morning.

The timetable for the Coffs Cup service will be advertised early next month.
