Michelle Smart, customer service director, said: “FCC will be running free services home on this New Year’s Eve and for the next four years. New Year’s Eve is a time of celebration and customers shouldn’t have to worry about how they’re going to get home which is why we have decided to add extra services to our more popular routes.”

The additional services to St Albans will run at 2am, 2.30am, 3am and 3.30am.
