The Weymouth BID has been working closely with First Bus Dorset to provide an extended bus service in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
Simon Newport, General Manager of First Bus Group, said “We’re delighted to be working with Weymouth BID to offer this special New Year’s Eve service. It’s great that our passengers will have buses running late into the night as the town celebrates the New Year. By offering this alternative travel option, we hope that it’ll encourage revellers to leave their cars at home if they’re having a drink, as well as giving them a safer option opposed to walking.”
As New Year’s falls on a Saturday First Bus will be running a bus service all night to Portland, the last departure from Weymouth will at 02h00.
The last departure to Littlemoor and Preston will also be at 02h00. The last Service 8 to Westham and Chickerell will be at 01h35.
Service 10 to Dorchester last departure from Weymouth will be 0140.
Nigel Read, Weymouth BID Manager said “The night time economy is one of the key objectives in the Weymouth BID business plan and as New Year’s Eve is always a great party time in Weymouth we have been working hard to create safe ways of getting home after the celebrations in Weymouth. We are hoping that even more people will choose to come to Weymouth to party the night way and enjoy time in the many restaurants, bars and clubs. The BID is also working with Taxi companies to ensure that everyone has a safe journey home after the festivities”.
