Let the Night Owl take you home 14 December 2012

This festive season Bus Vannin are at hand to help you get home safe and sound during Christmas and New Year.

From Monday 17th to Thursday 20th, Bus Vannin are providing additional Night Owl services to Douglas, Peel, Ramsey, Castletown, Port Erin and Port St Mary. The Night Owl will also run its scheduled services on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd as normal.

To help those celebrating the arrival of 2013 return home, the Night Owl will operate on New Year’s Eve, with the Port St Mary and Ramsey departures at 00:15.

Hon Graham Cregeen MHK, Minister for Community, Culture and Leisure commented:

‘The Night Owl or ‘Hullad Oie’ service provides a convenient and affordable option for those celebrating this Christmas and New Year. I hope everyone enjoys the festive season and I urge you not to drink and drive.’

The Night Owl service will remain at its normal fare for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, so a single fare from Douglas to Peel would cost just £4.60 and to Port St Mary or Ramsey it would be £5.80.

The operation of the Night Owl or ‘Hullad Oie’ not only provides a convenient and affordable way home for those celebrating the New Year, but the availability of this service should also contribute towards the reduction of drink driving on the Island.

If the passenger has taken advantage of the Money saving Manx Rider tickets currently available, each journey on the Hullad Oie counts as two journeys on the Manx Rider.

O.A.P’s and passengers with Explorer tickets only pay a single fare price and members of the Manx Blind Welfare still travel for free.
