Go Metro with free bus and rail rides on New Year’s Eve from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Metro will offer free service on all Metro-operated bus and rail lines on New Year’s Eve from 9 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday to help everyone travel safely.

The fare gates at all Metro Rail stations will be unlatched, and fare boxes and validators will not deduct fare from TAP cards and fare media from 9 p. m. to 2 a.m. on New Year’s Eve. To plan your trip, use the Transit app.

If you’re headed to Grand Park for the annual New Year’s Eve celebration, the B/D Line subway’s Civic Center Station is adjacent to the park.

Free New Year’s Eve rides are an annual Metro tradition designed to give Angelenos more transportation options to reach holiday destinations safely while avoiding holiday gridlock, parking costs, and hassles.

Trains will run approximately every 20 minutes after 8 p.m. on New Year’s Eve — with a few extra trains added that evening to help riders get around.
