New Year’s Eve partiers have a way to get home safely

Let’s see — it’s New Year’s Eve, and you’ve been partying like it’s 1999. Oh, wait. That already happened.

So, you’re having such a good time you just want to jump up on a table and don a lightshade. Nah, that’s just not your style.

OK, you and your friends are out partying the night away, and you suddenly discover you forgot to appoint someone as a designated driver, and now everyone’s way too intoxicated to get behind the wheel.

Not to worry. Lassen Rural Bus offers free rides to make sure you arrive home safe and sound.
