L.A. public transportation to be free of charge on this Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve


Angelenos heading in and out of town to celebrate the holidays will actually want to get to their destinations for nothing on public transportation this Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, courtesy of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Metro reported Tuesday that it will postpone fees for transport and rail service for five hours each on the two holidays.

Riders will actually want to load up transports and trains free of charge during the accompanying occasions:

9 p.m. Dec. 24 through 2 a.m. Dec. 25
9p.m. Dec. 31 through 2 a.m. Jan. 1
During those periods, fare gates with be unlatched at Metro Rail stations, while fare boxes and validators won’t deduct money from TAP cards, according to a news release from the L.A. transportation agency.

Metro will be running normal weekday bus and rail service levels on those days, the delivery expressed. Later 8 p.m., trains will run about like clockwork until around 12 PM, when the last trains of the evening are scheduled to depart.

Not at all like earlier years, Metro won’t offer for the time being or improved rail service on New Year’s Eve.

On Christmas and New Year’s Day, a Sunday/holiday service schedule will be as a result. Metro will, however, add capacity to the L Line (Gold) on Jan. 1 for those headed to to the Rose Parade or Rose Bowl game in Pasadena.
