Vancouver, WA: Make the smart choice to get home safely this New Year’s Eve: C-TRAN is offering free service across its entire system.

All C-TRAN routes will be free starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, December 31, and continuing through the end of service. Several routes will also be extended into the early hours of Wednesday, January 1. Routes 37, 60, 65, 71 and The Vine will run until about 2 a.m. Routes 164 and 199 will provide additional trips from downtown Portland to Fisher’s Landing Transit Center and 99th Street Transit Center, respectively, between the hours of approximately 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Full New Year’s Eve schedules are available at www.c-tran.com/newyears.

Impaired driving causes thousands of deaths each year in the United States, and many such crashes occur during the holidays – including New Year’s Eve. So if you’re heading out to ring in 2020, be safe, plan ahead and let C-TRAN do the driving instead of getting behind the wheel.

Transit is a safe, smart alternative to driving. Consider making C-TRAN a part of your New Year’s Eve celebration even if you’re not staying out until midnight. If you’re celebrating in Portland, TriMet and the Portland Streetcar are providing free service after 8 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. MAX lines will operate until approximately 3 a.m.

C-TRAN is proud to partner with sponsors People’s Community Federal Credit Union, the Port of Vancouver and ilani to offer free New Year’s Eve service this year.

For routes without extended hours, C-TRAN will operate on regular weekday schedules on December 31. Extended-route schedules vary. For questions or trip planning assistance, please call C-TRAN at 360-695-0123.
