Before you
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 get you from party to party and home again safely, tonight, as on Christmas Eve, Metro will be offering free rides for one and all on all bus and rail lines. You can hop on board in your sparkly paper 2011 hats and cocktail party finery for absolutely free from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Plus, to keep you moving about the city all through the night and into the New Year, Metro Rail lines and the Orange Line will operate OVERNIGHT 24-HOUR service from December 31st into January 1st. All Rail lines & Orange Line will operate every 20 minutes. (After 2 a.m., though, make sure you've got your Tap Card fired up or your cash fare at the ready.)
