Metro Offers Free Rides Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve

All Metro Rail and Bus lines will be free starting at 9 p.m. Dec. 24 until 2 a.m. Dec. 25 and 9 p.m. Dec. 31 until 2 a.m. Jan. 1.

In keeping with tradition, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced Monday it will once again be offering free rides this Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve to provide safe transportation and reduce holiday traffic congestion on the busiest nights of the year for drinking and driving.

All Metro Rail and Bus lines will be free starting at 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 24 until 2 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 25 and 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 31 until 2 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 1.

Metro Rail will operate all-night service on New Year's Eve for those staying out extra late and to encourage easy travel to the Rose Parade in Pasadena. However, free fares only apply until 2 a.m. Those traveling after 2 a.m. will need their TAP card to ride.

Metro Rail and Metro Bus systems will operate on a Sunday schedule Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, both of which fall on a Tuesday this year.
