A new bus service set up to reduce drunken disorder in Carlisle is to begin on Friday night.
The aim is to help people get home quickly
Cumbria Police has worked with a local bus company to set up the service, which runs from midnight to 0300 BST.
Buses will run four times a night from the city centre to two routes to the east and the west at a flat fare of £2.
The service is aimed at getting clubbers home as quickly and safely as possible, and police will provide support to staff on board.
Sgt Richard Higgin said: "Obviously where you get a lot of people together, and a lot of them have been drinking, it can give rise to the potential for disorder.
"So the quicker and safer we can get people home the better it will be.
"However, it will make no difference to the way we patrol the city."
The service was due to begin earlier in the year, but was delayed because of the January floods.
