After passing out of the transportation committee last week, the motion to extend Metro Red Line service to 3:00 a.m. Thursday through Saturday nights from November 1st to January 3rd will be considered by City Council today. Because Metro doesn't have the funding for the expanded service, the "service would be supported in part by private sponsorhips," the motion states.

If passed, the city will also convene a task force with the affected council disticts, the city's transportation department and the business community to create a marketing campaign. Many people are excited for this so see what happens later today. The full motion text is below:
