Coffs Harbour - free Plan B bus

RBT means you need a Plan B – if you’re going out for a few drinks this festive season, make sure that you have a safe way to get home that doesn’t involve getting behind the wheel. If you’re drinking, don’t drive.

A ‘Plan B’ bus will operate in and around Coffs Harbour on Friday and Saturday nights during December 2019 and January 2020, including New Year's Eve.

During the trial, the bus will travel each of three routes once per night, with pick-up and drop-off at any stop on the routes.

The bus will have a security guard on board and the routes can be downloaded via a QR code. There are also opportunities to win a $20 Cabcharge voucher for those who complete a short survey.

Details of the routes, QR code and stops can be found in:

Alcohol-related crashes claimed the lives of at least 64 people on NSW roads last year. This accounts for 18 per cent of all road fatalities, including 52 lives lost on country roads.

As your blood alcohol concentration rises, so does your risk of being in a crash. Whether it is calling on someone for a lift or rolling out a swag on a mate’s floor, you need to have a Plan B before you go out during the festive season.

If you have had a lot to drink in one night, you may be over the limit for a large part of the following day so you should avoid driving.

It’s not worth risking your life, or someone else’s, so no matter how short the journey or how well you know the road, make sure you have a Plan B to get home safely.

The Plan B bus is made possible by the support of Transport for NSW, NSW Police, Coffs Harbour City Council and the Coffs Harbour Liquor Accord.
