NEIGHBOURHOOD policing team officers and Stevenage Borough Council have been working together to run an operation to help people get home safely over Christmas and New Year funded by SoSafe, the Stevenage community safety partnership.

For the second year running, a night bus service staffed by two officers will run tonight (Christmas Eve) and New Year's Eve.

It will run between 11.10pm and 4.10am. The first stop will leave Lytton Way outside the train station at ten past the hour and there will be a second pick up outside the White Lion pub in the Old Town High Street before driving to several drop-off points around the town.

Acting Chief Inspector for Stevenage Richard Liversidge said: "We want people visiting pubs and clubs in Stevenage over the Christmas and New Year period to have fun, but enjoy their night safely.

"The bus service is designed to get party goers home safely, preventing them becoming involved in crime and disorderly behaviour. Last year the service was used by a number of people who may well have walked home because they hadn't pre-planned a lift and I am sure this year will assist more people, and in doing so ensure their safety."

Stevenage licensed taxi services will be available throughout the night located at the leisure park, train station, Danestrete and High Street and trains will run as normal.
