As Vancouverites know all too well, the mathematical odds of finding a taxi on New Year’s Eve in Vancouver are pretty close to zero. Fortunately, taking transit should be easier (and cheaper) than ever this year.

Translink is offering free, extended service starting on New Year’s Eve and continuing into the wee hours of New Year’s Day. The bumped-up transit offering starts at 5 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2015, and goes to 5 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2016. The best part: It won’t cost you a thing during that time period.

The SkyTrain will be running more frequent evening trains and also extending service by approximately one hour. The last trains will be departing Waterfront Station at 2:05 a.m. (Canada Line), 2:16 a.m. (Millennium Line) and 2:20 a.m. (Expo Line). Continue reading:
