On Christmas Eve patrons may ride for free from 9 p.m. until closing - generally around 2 a.m. - on the Metro Rail system, and from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the Metro Bus system.

On New Year's Eve all Metro Rail lines will operate all night to encourage easy travel to the Rose Parade in Pasadena. However, free rides will only be from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. Metro Bus rides will be free from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Metro Rail and Metro Buses will operate on Sunday schedules Christmas and New Year's Day, both which fall on Thursday this year.
