Leaflets about the Christmas and New Year holiday services will be available from Metlink timetable stockists – which include libraries, information centres and the Metlink Service Centre – from Monday 11 December 2006.

The After Midnight bus service will operate in the early mornings of Saturday 23, Sunday 24, Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 December 2006, and Monday 1, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 January 2007. After Midnight buses operate from midnight until 3am – and on some services until 4am.
