It's time to break open the piggy bank or shake out your pants pockets and take your pennies to Downtown L.A. Saturday for 1¢ rides on Angels Flight in honor of the funicular's 110th anniversary.

The fare will be lowered December 31 only to its 1901 opening day fare.

In addition to the penny rides, the two iconic orange rail cars, Olivet and Sinai, have been Tweeting about special 110th anniversary treats and fun in store for Saturday's celebration. $1.00 commemorative tickets are on sale now at the Angels Flight station house; follow @AngelsFlight on Twitter for more info.
