Rides on RTD buses, trains to be free on New Year's Eve

Rides on RTD buses, trains to be free on New Year's Eve

According to Longview Transit Director of Operations Tequita Mumphrey, "Longview Transit has been providing Safe-Ride-Home transportation on New Year's Eve for nine years now, and it continues to be a great service for the community". The company, which stands as the largest Missouri-owned distributor of premium spirits, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks, is giving away a total of 1,000 free rides to partiers in Missouri on New Year's Eve.

"Being safe doesn't mean you can't have fun and Long Beach Transit will be there on New Year's Eve to get you safely to your destination", LBT Deputy Chief Executive Officer Debra A. Johnson said in a statement. In addition, Metro will add service to its night routes.

CHS reported here on King County Council member Dave Upthegrove's legislation introduced in early 2017 to make the changes possible.

Partygoers can ride Brampton Transit for free December 31 after 7 p.m. until the end of service. Light rail will still require a full, valid fare to ride. Capitol Hill Station and the rest of the line operates 5 AM to 1 AM on weekdays and Saturdays. Fareboxes and ORCA card readers will be covered to remind riders not to pay.

On New Year's Day, January 1, Metro Buses will operate on a Sunday/Holiday schedule, while bus lines that do not operate on Sundays will not run on Monday. Help push us over the 800 mark in December and help us stay NO MORE POP-UPS for the month!
