Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

To help keep you moving safely around Los Angeles tonight, Metro will be offering free rides to all passengers on all their subway, light rail, and bus lines. You can hop on board free of charge between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m.--perfect timing for going to and from gatherings where the holiday spirits may be flowing. Metro's goal in giving gratis rides tonight is to curb dangerous driving choices, and, we hope, a little generosity in the spirit of the season. Tomorrow Metro will operate on a Sunday schedule, so plan your trips accordingly.

Next week, Metro will also offer free service for New Year's Eve from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. New Year's Day, and will operate rail and the Orange lines all night.
