Alex Hornby, group managing director said: “Since we launched our Glasgow Nightbus network earlier in the year – one of the first in the UK to run completely with zero-emission, electric buses - we’ve received a great welcome from those in the nighttime leisure sector across Glasgow and our growing numbers of customers who have come to trust this safe and reliable way to travel after midnight.

"We’re delighted to now extend coverage further by helping people celebrate and get them home after bringing in the bells on Hogmanay.

“Not only will this help customers out celebrating, but it will also support hospitality workers to get home safely after a very busy shift.”
