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, December 31, and Friday, January 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.
The Metro Purple Line operates from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to Wilshire/Western and the Metro Red Line from Union Station to North Hollywood in the San Fernando Valley via Hollywood. The Metro Blue Line operates from Long Beach to downtown Los Angeles; the Metro Green Line runs between Norwalk and El Segundo, and the Metro Gold Line operates between Pasadena and East Los Angeles.
For complete route and schedule information, patrons can call 1-800-COMMUTE or visit Metro’s website and access the Metro Trip Planner at www.metro.net.
