Vancouver transit users get free ride on New Year's Eve | CTV British Columbia

"The free ride begins at 5 p.m. and ends after the final NightBus departs from downtown Vancouver. Most bus service will cease at the usual time, shortly after 3 a.m., while SkyTrain and SeaBus service is being extended by one hour."

PS. is tipsy tow standard for CAA memebers usually?
and do they tow your car? or is it like safe ride and two people come?

I can't find any information about this for Vancouver.
a few hits for USA cities and read that it's a 5mile max distance...

Actually I can probably answer this for you.

Earlier in the year bcaa had a trial run on the tipsy tow (not sure on the proper name).

But now it's implemented into the membership for a maximum of one call if your drunk.

Any "mechanical" failures, you would have a certain number of calls and towing distance depending on your membership.

I think taking out fuses and relays wont work. Usually thats the first thing they check when your cars not working.
