Metro Will Be Free On Christmas Eve And New Year's Eve
If you're planning on drinking on Christmas Eve or for New Year's, consider taking the Metro. All services will be free these two evenings. On Dec. 24 to 25, Metro will be free from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. This counts for Metro buses as well as Metro rail. On NYE, Metro buses and trains will be free from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Also, all trains, plus the Orange and Silver Lines, will operate all night on NYE. Day passes will be valid until 3 a.m.
There will be enhanced metro services for those headed to Grand Park's NYE event or to the Rose Bowl Game and Parade in Pasadena. However, on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, Metro will be using a limited Sunday/holiday schedule.
