• Thursday, December 24, starting at 9pm through Friday, December 25 at 2am

All Metro Rail stations with fare gates will be unlatched, and fareboxes and validators will not deduct fare.

No overnight or enhanced service Dec. 31 – Jan. 1 on Metro Rail
Due to the Safer-At-Home order and cancellation of major in-person events such as New Year’s Eve Countdown, Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game, normal schedules and service levels will be in effect for Metro Rail. Trains run approximately every 20 minutes after 8pm, and last trains depart around midnight.
