Officials promote free rides on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa joined Sheriff Leroy Baca, Metro CEO Art Leahy, Santa Claus and others this morning at Union Station to promote free rides on Metro buses and trains on both Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The free rides will be offered from 9 p.m to 2 a.m. and are a good way to get around safely. Amplifying the holiday safety message, the Mayor and Sheriff Baca reminded transit riders if they “See Something, Say Something” regarding suspicious packages and activity in the transit system.
