To promote a safe holiday season, Metro is offering free rides on all buses and rail lines operating on New Year’s Eve.
The free fare program will be in effect between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. the night and early morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 31, and Friday, Jan. 1.
Patrons boarding a Metro Bus, including the Metro Orange Line, or the Metro Red, Purple, Blue, Green or Gold rail lines during the hours designated will receive a free ride to their destination.
Metro is reminding the public that it is an option for people attending holiday parties so they don’t have to drive. Metro’s fleet of buses, the Metro Orange Line, a dedicated bus transitway in the San Fernando Valley, and Metro Rail lines offer patrons alternatives to driving solo in their vehicles with convenient travel opportunities throughout the region.
For complete route and schedule information, patrons can call (800) COMMUTE or visit Metro’s Web site and access the Metro Trip Planner at www.metro.net.
