MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw is proud to once again partner with SGI to provide safe transportation so you and your cohorts can “Wing In The New Year” with a free ride on Moose Jaw Transit.

This year marks the 32nd edition of the program which offers free Moose Jaw Transit service for anyone celebrating the New Year, whether at a local establishment or at a private gathering within City limits.

Moose Jaw Transit regular fixed route service will be in effect from 7:55 p.m. New Year’s Eve (December 31) through 3:15 a.m. New Year’s Day (January 1) and you can view the entire schedule at  MooseJaw.ca/Transit.

“The New Year is a time to celebrate with friends and family, and getting home safe from those celebrations is paramount,” said Moose Jaw Mayor Clive Tolley. “We thank SGI and all of our partners for supporting “Wing In The New Year” and allowing Moose Jaw Transit to offer you a safe, free ride to and from your New Year’s destination.”

“New Year’s Eve will look different this year for many people, but the focus on preventing impaired driving is one thing that hasn’t changed,” said Minister Responsible for SGI Don Morgan. “SGI is pleased to partner with Moose Jaw Transit to offer people a safe, convenient, free option for people to get home. Whatever you do this New Year’s Eve, make sure you have a plan for a safe ride home.”

Modifications have been made to regular Transit routes to accommodate service to New Years Eve events being held at venues such as the Fraternal Order of Eagles Club and ANAVETS Club. Most restaurants and lounges are located within walking distance of a bus stop, however additional bus stops have been added at popular locations such as Brown’s Social House, The Crushed Can Rec Room & Bar/Cask 82, Chiller’s Brew Pub and Douly’s Billiards & Lounge.

Paratransit is also available for free as part of the “Wing In The New Year” campaign – to book this service you can call Moose Jaw Transit: 306-694-4488 or email: transit@MooseJaw.ca.

Masks are mandatory on City of Moose Jaw Transit. For full details on the latest COVID-19 safety protocols, visit MooseJaw.ca/coronavirus.
