Metro will once again offer free rides this New Year’s Eve to help Angelenos celebrate the holidays safely. No fares will be charged on any Metro rail and bus lines from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday, December 31.
“Riding public transportation is always a good idea,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said. “But we also want residents and visitors to the County to enjoy the holiday season safely.”
Metro Rail will operate all-night service on New Year’s Eve for those staying out extra late. However, free fares only apply until 2 a.m. Those traveling after 2 a.m. will need a Transit Access Pass to ride.
“We want to encourage people to let Metro be their designated driver throughout the holiday season,” said Marc Littman, Metro Deputy Executive Officer of Public Relations.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving encourages all party revelers to designate a non-drinking driver, take public transportation and avoid getting in the car with anyone who has been drinking. For more information about free Metro holiday fares, click here.
